Water rates on the rise – James Hunter, fighting the good fight in San Jose; energetic groups in Marysville, Lucerne keeping the issue on the surface

9 Apr

I got a nice e-mail from a man in the San Jose area, James Hunter, about his efforts to fight undue water rate increases. He has kept a journal of his adventures with CPUC and San Jose Water Company in his blog, here:

Wow, look at the work it takes to deal with these people.  Mr. Hunter has the kind of perseverance and intelligence it takes to hold a candle to the water company. I do not have the patience or expertise to go through the bureaucratic runaround, it’s just maddening. Hunter does not get discouraged. His blog is a good read for anybody who wants to take on the flak catchers. 

And you might want to check in with the Marysville folks, they are a motivated group:
