Our water supply has been in the news quite often lately. We can never let what happened to our water supply in 2014 happen again. That’s why I favor a Regional Water Authority and will sign an agreement with the other communities in Lucas County within the first few weeks of my elected term. I’ve spoken with our suburban neighbors and met with the council of governments studying this matter and have great confidence in their work so far. We need to monetize our water treatment plant, not politicize it. This will stabilize our rates, protect our water supply, and build on the strong economic advantage we enjoy by being located on the Great Lakes, the largest single source of fresh water on the planet.
