People Talk: What issues got you interested in the EID race?

Richard Kerr, Placerville: “The issue is the millions of dollars of debt EID is facing and what to do to stop the bleeding.”

Toby Higgins, El Dorado Hills: "€œContinued rate increases. Our EID bill is approaching our PG&E bill."

Richard Boylan, Diamond Springs: “Fiscal responsibility at EID. A lack of transparency. A good old boy network including nepotistic hiring. A board that’s ignoring climate change and buried the RAND report they commissioned and paid for. The threat from he Delta, peripheral canal plans to take our water ... that kind of stuff."

Phillip Weichel, El Dorado Hills: “The unbelievable cost of water, the proposed rate increase and lack of a plan on how to get EID out of debt.”

Jon Jakowatz, El Dorado Hills: “Spending, debting and rate hiking. An 18 percent rate increase in 2010, 15 percent in 2011 and 20 to 28 percent after the first of the year.”
