GOP governor candidate Neel Kashkari says California’s water crisis is more important than Jerry Brown’s ‘Crazy Train’
California Governor Jerry Brown has already weighed in on the state water crisis by ordering the roll back of regulations he and the Democrats put in place that have kept water from PEOPLE. Brown acknowledges through his own action his rules have exacerbated the drought, but his opponent in the race for governor, Neel Kashkari, has not made it an issue–although he should.
Californians are now witnessing dust bowls at farms and ranches and downright water rustling. And considering there’s no plan on track to build more reservoirs and dams things can only get worse.
I asked the Treasury-Department-official-turned-candidate about the water issue while at San Diego’s Politifest confab on Saturday. He acknowledged Brown’s priorities are out of whack. He says the Brown high speed rail line should be scrapped and the money used for other priorities–education, jobs and WATER.
