Coco flip-flops at EID

EDITOR:

Director Dale Coco said in February that the Faux Farm (Fake Farm) issue had to be cleaned up and reformed because it was unfair to other EID ratepayers. Instead, he flip-flopped and went back on his own promises, yet again. He’s been doing that a lot in his short time at EID (for example, saying he would freeze rates, then voting to raise rates).

I voted for Coco and feel betrayed by his actions at EID!

With the aiding and abetting of EID management, some people think just calling themselves “small farmers” and planting 24 baby olive trees, with a drip line, gives them the right to ultra cheap water to use on their entire property. These properties, in some cases, can include large custom-built homes with large lawns, pools, pastures, pet livestock, fountains, gardens and you name it extras. This is happening now while everyone else, especially all of us residential rate payers, pay a whole lot more (i.e., too much more for the same water).

Coco, despite what he said in February, did a complete flip-flop (again) and voted against the two reform directors Prada and Day (again). Coco voted with the two good-ole-boy directors (again) to let these faux farmers receive preferential treatment, that is unfair to all the other EID ratepayers.

Coco’s words mean nothing, because he’ll just flip-flop again and again.
