Modesto Bee sponsors water Summit
July 15, 2015 7-9 at the Gallo center
The forum will be moderated by founder and former president of the Great Valley Center and former Mayor of Modesto, Carol Whiteside.
Whiteside left the great Valley Center when Bob Gallo discontinued financing the venture.
As Mayor of Modesto. she is known for “Curtains up 88” that gave us the convention center and closed 10 Street which created a campus for the then First Baptist Church and cut off downtown Modesto.
Whitesides credits are many. She was paid $15,000 with M ID money to lobby for the sale of water to San Francisco.
It would be more informative, if the Bee had Carol Whiteside as a panelist, rather than the moderator.
The five panelists are Jeff Cowan, Randy Fiorini, Sarge Green, Felicia Marcus, and Assemblywoman Kristen Olsen.
The panel will engage in a conversation on valley water.
The panel will bring their facts, viewpoints, and opinions to the discussion.
In the interest of transparency and qualifications, each panelist should be asked if they went to the microphone during M ID meetings to oppose the sale of our water to San Francisco.
We already know that the moderator was paid to lobby for the sale.
We should thank the editors of the Modesto Bee Ken Riddick, Joseph Kieta, and Mike Dunbar.
