The Modesto Irrigation District and the Oakdale Irrigation District water sale is being implemented by the same attorney, Tim O'Laughlin, who represents both MID and OID in the deals. Do you think that is why MID calls it a San Francisco water sale, and OID calls it a Brisbane water sale? Brisbane receives its water from San Francisco.
This is a clear conflict of interest! Where is the California Bar Association in this? Are they just looking the other way?
Once MID and OID sell our water to San Francisco and Brisbane, it will never come back; good sense tells us that. What is much worse, in the future anytime San Francisco needs more water they will sue the districts and win.
