As a farmer in the Empire-Waterford area, my family has supported and voted for Cecil Hensley for Modesto Irrigation District Board of Directors since his first election in 1991. In this November's election we are supporting and voting for Nick Bavaro. Hensley has done a good job over the years representing us without any complaints. Now that Hensley is in his 80s, it's time for him to retire. We need to bring in a younger generation to take the wheel at MID.
