“Rubber-stamp” Harry strikes again

EDITOR: In scarcely 45 minutes EID management’s proposed $1.7 million gross spending budget increase for 2012 received Harry Norris’ enthusiastic support at the Oct. 24 EID board meeting. Did Harry challenge management’s opening spending proposal? No! Does Harry ever get into budget “nitty-gritty”? No! “Ratepayers for Norris”? I can’t imagine why. In the last eight […]

Keep Norris, Osborne

EDITOR: In hard times there are hard choices to make …. there are sacrifices to be made while trying to balance the good. I understand anger at higher bills.

A new ‘Day’ for EID?

On Oct. 11 Harry Norris and EID’s board again reviewed General Manager Abercrombie’s proposed 28 percent residential water rate increase for 2012. There was a lot of bickering by different board members over which ratepayer segments should receive preferential rate breaks … but neither Harry or anyone else said “enough is enough, let’s truly cut […]
