NCCA-PAC Endorses Scott Miller, District III & Rich Johansen, District V NID Directors and asks for your support

After interviewing both candidates in each district the PAC felt that Scott Miller and Rich Johansen are the most qualified to provide the strong leadership the Nevada Irrigation District (NID) needs.

There is a strong effort to change the direction of NID, and long time management and protection of our local water rights. Preservation of our water rights, and access to water by our community is critical to the economic health of our industry. It is of critical importance that a dependable, sustainable water supply plays in the economic health and quality of life of our region.Over a century ago Los Angeles started taking water from Owen's Valley. This destroyed much of their environment and drastically hurt their economy. Today Southern California and the bureaucrats in Sacramento are after our water. We need to  make sure this never happens. Join us in supporting Rich and Scott. They understand.
