Pradaling about with small farms


If you went to grocery store A and purchased five apples for $1 each you spent $5 for five apples. If you went to grocery store B and spent $1.25 for four apples and received the fifth one free you still spent $5 for five apples. Mr. Prada would complain that grocery store B is unfair because they give apples away for free.

Mr. Prada is attempting to dupe the ratepayer for political reasons. He is again on a rampage with his massaged statistics and erroneous claims. I will not waste the space to refute Mr. Prada’s efforts because that has already been accomplished by EID’s staff, other members of EID’s board and a July 2 article in the Mountain Democrat. Yet the misrepresentations continue.

The head of Nazi Germany’s propaganda machine Joseph Goebbels once said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”

Are we foolish enough to be led down this path? Small farms are an essential part of the county. Mr. Prada’s claims are erroneous, politically motivated and are a misrepresentation of the true facts.

  1. Mr. Prada’s prattling is about 720 small farmers compared to 39,000 plus rate payers. Above tier 1 used about 5 months out of the year. Prada’s cause is not about 720 small farms, it’s more about cutting water use so his developer buddies have water to build more houses.
