Gov. Brown Touts State Water Bond at Water Authority Headquarters  

Local leaders also support Proposition 1 to improve water supplies   



Gov. Jerry Brown and Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins today rallied support for Proposition 1, a $7.5 billion state water bond on the Nov. 4 ballot, during a visit to the Water Authority headquarters.   


The governor was backed by Water Authority Board Chair Mark Weston, San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, and many members of the county's state legislative delegation: Sen. Joel Anderson, Sen. Marty Block, Sen. Ben Hueso, Assemblymember Rocky Chavez, Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez, Assemblymember Marie Waldron, and Assemblymember Shirley Weber. They were joined by representatives from business, labor, civic and environmental groups.


After an open public discussion, the Water Authority's Board of Directors unanimously adopted a formal position in favor of Proposition 1 on Aug. 28. The ballot measure meets the Water Authority's policy goals for equitable distribution of funds, support of statewide priorities including water storage and water-use efficiency, and greater regional and local water supply self-sufficiency through potable reuse projects, non-potable water recycling projects and seawater desalination.
