Bruce Frohman: Committee only delays reckoning

My experience in local government has been that whenever a blue-ribbon committee is appointed, the outcome is known before the first meeting takes place. From the outset, the purpose of the 25-member Stanislaus County Water Advisory Committee has been to delay the Board of Supervisors in taking any meaningful action to alleviate the impacts of the present drought. The power brokers want to prevent anything from happening to their below-market-value access to public water supplies. They will continue to make empty resolutions until either the drought ends or we run out of water.
