Calaveras Supervisors reconsider Mokelumne Wild River designation

   Only after complaints from Amador County Supervisors and water resource board members, on May 27, 2014 the Calaveras Supervisors decided to hold a study session regarding the Mokelumne River Wild and Scenic designation, which causes Amador and Calaveras County to lose their rights to the river.

   Bay Area water companies are pushing this through the state as a new law in order to keep the water flowing to East Bay Municipal Utility District and other Bay Area water companies; and they are using Calaveras County as the authority who wants it.  Now we understand!!

   It does appear that these Bay Area elected officials actually pulled the wool over the eyes of our less than competent elected officials, supposedly in the name of "environmentalism".

   Friends of Chris Wright and Steve Wilensky pushed for it and the Board went for it without any notification to those with whom they have Joint Powers Agreements, or of giving the public due notification to attend and oppose the crazy policy.

   This is exactly what happened with Supervisor Spellman, Ponte and Edson when they declared a certain religion to be the law of the land in Calaveras County. No study session on whether Church and State should still be kept separate, as our Constitution requires.

   Are these Supervisors as dumb as they appear to be?????
