Re: “EBMUD Has Yet Another Option Besides a New Mokelumne Dam

People in civilized society are governed by ethical as well as legal standards. Counsel for EBMUD has opined that Linney has no legal conflict of interest though Linney works for a developer whose sole goal is to profit by tapping into the limited water supplies available for existing EBMUD users. That is unethical but may explain why lawyers have their own reputation to defend.

Linney should not vote on nor participate in the discussions of increasing water supplies by any means whether by joining with COCO in its Los Vaqueros Reservoir, or the Mokelumne dam proposal. Simply because we cannot distinguish between Linney the employee of SUNCAL and Linney the elected official.

As this article clearly points out, we are not being told the truth by EBMUD. And the process is suffering.

We are in a time of downsizing and limiting what governments can do based on sheer economics. Why should EBMUD counsel and directors spend valuable time defending a biased and prejudiced evaluation of water expansion options with the obvious "I am not a crook" line. Human nature is such that voters will never believe Linney can separate his two roles. He is deluding himself if he thinks he can.
