Walson for Rainbow's Bonsall vacancy
Last updated 10/6/2006 at Noon
Gerald Walson put his neck on the good ‘ole Rainbow Municipal Water District (RMWD) chopping block September 7 by applying for the board vacancy in Division 1 southeast of Hwy 76 (greater Bonsall Area).
Gerry has been active with Fallbrook and Bonsall planning groups and the distant county offices for over two decades. He is best-known as incorruptible by developers and an advocate of every North County homeowner to preserve our rural lifestyle, including our sensitive San Luis Rey River aquifer.
Participating for the last ten years in RMWD board meetings, Gerry literally has “water on the brain.” His North County Times Community Forum article on diminishing water resources was posted on prestigious Brown and Caldwell California Water News.
Gerry’s university aeronautical engineering background, two UCLA Master’s Degrees (plus doctorate work) and a 40-year career with prominent aerospace companies’ on-schedule performance in project management with multi-billion-dollar satellite systems overly qualifies him for planning, budgeting and implementing long-range projects, such as the current 10-year Rainbow Water, Wastewater and Capital Improvement Plans.
As president and editor for Bonsall Area for a Rural Community (BARC) Gerry led meetings, engineer to engineer, with CalTrans and SANDAG and succeeded in getting our infamous Bonsall Bottleneck widened on homicidal Hwy 76!
Known for his frugality — no Rainbow ratepayer money will be wasted while Gerry can still vote!
Support Gerald Walson’s appointment Friday, October 13, at 9 a.m. at RMWD headquarters or insist that the board call a public election for the vacancy in Division 1 (Election Code 1780 – section 1000).
