Government inaction

I have a problem with water that drains from across Highway 49 into my back yard. My neighbor has plugged off the drainage ditch, so I have mosquitoes breeding like crazy.

So I called the health department. They gave me another number to call. Each one passed me off to another phone number. The seventh one I talked to said I needed to talk to someone in Sacramento, if she is still working there. Cassie is the name.

I feel this is a health problem, but no one will talk to me about it.
