League of Conservation backs Lutness for Castaic Lake Water Agency

The League of Conservation Voters' endorsement was awarded on Friday, Oct. 1 to Carole Lutness, candidate for the Castaic Lake Water Agency, Division 3, in the upcoming Nov. 2 election.

The Los Angeles League of Conservation Voters supports candidates who are committed to preserving and protecting the environment.

"We endorse the candidate that will officially represent our heartfelt commitment to a clean, healthy and bountiful environment" said Anthony Rendon, president of the LALCV. "We feel that Carole Lutness is the person best able to uphold those values in her race, so we selected her to receive our endorsement and contribution."

"I am thrilled to receive this endorsement," Lutness said. "It's like the ‘Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval' when you run for office."

Lutness, a well-known activist in the Santa Clarita Valley, is the chair of the SCV Fair Elections Committee, which is part of a statewide organization committed to getting the corrupting influence of special-interest money out of politics.

"It is well known that water boards are packed by special interests that want the boards to over-report water availability," Lutness said. "I will take no money from these special interests. I will represent the citizens of Santa Clarita and insist that the Urban Water Management Plan reflects the real amount of water available in this community.

"I am going to fight for the taxpayer not to have to shoulder the cost of the desalinization plant. The more water we have to import from the Delta the more salt we will have to clean up. It is not right that our tax-payers must shoulder this cost," Lutness said.

Lutness went on to express concern that local residents must be stewards of their water supply and that everyone must adopt good water use habits.

"In this next century, there is going to be a significant change in our water resources," she said. "I want to make sure we are prudent so that there will be enough water for our children's children."
