Restore the Delta would like to thank our supporters, the members of the Delta Coalition, members of LAND, the fishing community, and our friends in Discovery Bay for turning out for today’s legislative hearing.
About 100 people who care about the Delta came out to make sure their objections to the BDCP and the Delta Plan were heard.
Contrary to the repeated comments of Jerry Meral, the Delta is united.
And contrary to the comments of Phil Isenberg, the people in the Delta are just beginning to make themselves heard.
Special thanks to our friends who drove from Berkeley, San Francisco, and San Jose to make public statements on behalf of the Delta. We appreciate you very much.
We also know that many of you wanted to make statements, or longer statements, and a number of you ended up watching the hearing in the hall or in the cafeteria. We thank you for being there. Being there (in bodily form) is a statement in itself.
It’s going to be a long, hard fight. But step by step, we know that our message of reduced water exports, improved levees, and local water projects to increase water supplies throughout the state, will be the winning message of the day — not just for the Delta, but for all Californians.
Yours in service,
Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, Jane Wagner-Tyack, Jessica Iniguez, Brett Baker
