Go with experience for MID board

Cecil Hensley has worked in irrigation management for 36 years; 16 years for the Modesto Irrigation District. He knows the problems involved intimately. Cecil has voted consistently for lower rates for private homes, family farms and small businesses. We need someone with his experience -- especially at this time of crisis in the San Joaquin-Sacramento Delta and the Tuolumne River. We must not gamble on someone who needs on-the-job training. Hensley is by far our best choice to resolve these problems at the same time keeping our rates as low as possible.
