Joe Scoto: Crass knows value of ag, water

Our agricultural industry is the lifeblood of our Valley economy and what binds our community together.

Without water for our crops, the Valley as we know it will collapse and the effects will be felt worldwide. Jim Costa has been in office since the Carter administration and has fallen short in protecting our limited water resources. Unlike Costa, Steve Crass has a plan to store our water when the opportunity presents itself instead of letting it flow to the ocean.

This will make for greater water allocation made available to our farmers and therefore a sustainable economy. Steve understands the detrimental effects this drought is having and will continue to have on our Valley. Steve Crass is the man I want as my representative.
