As many states have already sent out vote-by-mail ballots, this week I begin my coverage of the 2020 general elections. On this show we start with Irvine Ranch Water District Board candidate and water quality scientist Dr. Karen McLaughlin, and in the second segment, (min 28:57) running for re-election to the Board is current Board president and attorney Mary Aileen Matheis.
