Dianna Suarez: NID board celebrates ‘Year of the Woman’

I want to offer my congratulations to the voters and rate payers of Nevada Irrigation District for their votes placing a historic two women on the NID Board this Nov. 6.

Ricki Heck of Division 1 in the Nevada City area, and Laura Peters of Division 4 in Placer County were elected for the first time as our water future becomes ever more important. These two ladies have exceptional experience, skills, education, and abilities to lead with innovation, and wisdom not currently available on the board.

The old bored is finishing up with a substantial rate hike for their loyal customers, as well as embarking on a Raw Water Master Plan with an $800,000 to $1 million facilitation price tag. These new directors will bring fiscal responsibility and common sense to a group who has been secretive and opaque in their dealings with the public.

As is evidenced by Nevada County’s election of the first woman as sheriff, Shannan Moon, change is in the air. These choices by an informed electorate bode well for a bright, compassionate, and collaborative future for our communities. Thanks everyone!
