Almost four decades of MID service

November 22, 2013 

We want to offer a salute to two long-term members of the Modesto Irrigation District board who did not run for re-election and are stepping down. Tom Van Groningen served 20 years on the board and Paul Warda, 19 years. They’ve devoted thousands of hours to the public utility and helped guide it through some difficult and trying periods. They deserve our thanks.

Modesto Bee is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
