CA Water Options And Priorities in 2022

Offering valued insight are two water warriors who’ve been paying attention over the decades: former Mayor of Huntington Beach and climate activist Debbie Cook will return with Conner Everts, Executive Director of the Southern California Watershed Alliance, and facilitator of the Environmental Water Caucus. They both bring a thorough discussion of water policy in California: desalination technology, water governing entities, and the latest California water initiative; to hone our critical thinking skills before statewide sleights of hand sweep the body politic heating up toward the midterm elections this fall.

Personal Safety Roundtable with Three Public Women

Especially selected for this program are three guests whom are serving locally: Huntington Beach Councilwoman Rhonda Bolton, Garden Grove City Mayor Pro-tem Kimberly Nguyen, and UCI Professor and announced candidate for Irvine City Council Kathleen Treseder. They take up the Congressional censure of the AZ Republican Congressional member responsible for his grim gestures threatening Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. His name is not mentioned so as not to further amplify this individual’s hazards that he continues to represent and perpetuate. These three women were chose given the the particular challenges with which they have been contending with in their professional lives.

In the second segment (min 31:54), for our consideration is UCI School of Engineering Ph.D. candidate, Kimberly Duong with the anatomy of a researcher and a spokesperson. To bend an old adage: Water issues everywhere and not a moment to squander.
