Pat’s priorities are recycling, conservation, efficient landscaping and public education. She is dedicated to insuring a safe, affordable and plentiful local water supply for many years to come. Effective policy making and planning along with conservation are the keys to keeping water supply and demand in balance while insuring access to high quality water to enhance our quality of life and support a vital local economy.
