Kevin D. Korenthal, a candidate for Castaic Lake Water Agency (CLWA) Board of Directors, announced today that he has received the endorsement of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association Political Action Committee.

The Association is among the state's most prominent, non-partisan public policy organizations with 200,000 members throughout California.

"I am honored to receive the endorsement of California's most trusted taxpayer advocacy organization, the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association," Korenthal said. "We share a strong commitment to the efficient use of public funds to protect California's most precious natural resource now and in the future. The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association PAC endorsement reinforces my standing as the candidate ratepayers can trust to protect their interests."

Since the passage of Proposition 13 in 1978, HJTA has consistently championed lower taxes, efficient government and the right of citizens to vote on taxes and fees, Korenthal said.

"Kevin Korenthal has earned the endorsement of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association PAC through his long term commitment to putting the needs of California taxpayers first," HJTA President Jon Coupal said. "We trust that he will protect public funds and ensure that operations of the Castaic Lake Water Agency are efficient and effective. Never before has water been such an important issue for Californians, and Kevin has the 'right stuff' to fight for sound public policies that can help solve California's water challenges and protect taxpayers."

Korenthal is challenging CLWA Division One Director Ed Colley as he runs for a third term on the board. The Korenthal campaign is focused on three key issues: "rates, quality and reliability," Korenthal said.

He has testified before the CLWA Board of Directors that the chloride levels could be better reduced by finally building a water conveyance system in the Delta that does not draw salty sea-water and agricultural runoff into the water that eventually arrives in the Santa Clarita Valley.

Additionally, Korenthal advocates a statewide solution to California's water crisis to reduce CLWA's dependence on "questionable" chemical additives such as chloramines to disinfect the water the SCV receives from the State Water Project.
