It is good to know who your friends are at EID

EDITOR:

On the EID board the ratepayers have two friends, directors Day and Prada. I had hoped that in Mr. Coco, we would have a third ally on the board. It seems that Mr. Coco has chosen to favor the developers and agricultural interests of the county over the residential ratepayers who actually elected him.

Contrary to his campaign pledge to freeze rates, he has voted to increase them. He has said he would like to increase rates by 30 percent! I have not seen where he has cut the costs of the agency, nor implemented “tough policies” that would make the EID “more efficient and cost-effective.” Are we supposed to forget his campaign promises and just carry on?

I should have anticipated Mr. Coco’s loyalty to special interests. They spent $60,000 to get him elected.

Coco is no friend of the regular ratepayer!
