Bavaro will make a good MID director

I am pleased to learn that Nick Bavaro is running for the Modesto Irrigation District board. I know Nick very well from our years of service together on the Empire Union School District Board of Trustees.

Nick is a natural leader and an effective one. In 2001, when the Empire district needed to pass bond funding, Nick — virtually single-handed — raised the money, hired a consultant and took charge of that campaign. It passed with an overwhelming margin. As a result, we have the new Glick Middle School as well as handicap upgrades, health and safety upgrades throughout the system, and computer wiring in all schools.

Nick Bavaro will be an asset to any organization he chooses to affiliate with. The MID employees and ratepayers will benefit from his dedication and leadership.
