    I want to go on notice as saying I am totally against Brown doing anything more that is detrimental to this state.
    From defying he federal government on sanctuary cities to raising taxes on gas to dividing us from the rest of the country.
    Water is crucial to the central valley and his tunnels are a slap in the face to the farmers and citizens of this dying state.

    The cost for this project is outrageous, it will destroy the delta and the communities that surround it. The quality of life for us will be forever affected by the incursion of salt water or possibly no water at all to our Bay and dock.

    I’ve been water skiing and fishing on the Delta for over 40 years and 8 years ago my wife and moved to Discovery Bay when we retired. We love to look out our window onto our bay and enjoy the wildlife there and the serenity it gives us. I would hate to have a mud puddle for a bay in my backyard and no way of accessing the Delta. As there will be less water here because the “overpriced tunnels” that will destroy the natural habit that exist here.

    An, now, the Oroville dam situation.
    We’ve been in a drought for years. Governor Brown failed to make safety #1 with our water collection sites. But, remedy is available. Forget the tunnels! Take care of our existing dams & reservoirs. Preventative actions needed NOW. Waiting for governor Brown to do the RIGHT thing for California ? thankyou for your efforts.
