189 reasons not to re-elect Clark for OID

There are 189 reasons not to vote for OID'S Frank Clark. That's the number of acres he voted not to supply irrigation water to this year (and forever!). Cement has been poured into our lines so a drop of water will not be stolen. The reason -- OID didn't want any water going into the city of Riverbank, even though my six acres (with an Oakdale address) has been in Riverbank for 12 years and I have irrigated for 33 years with OID water. Yet, OID still can run their water through a drain ditch on my land. I have lost income from my property because of no water; others have also. What does Clark plan to do with the water from the 189 acres?
