Support Proposition 1E for Flood Control in California

I support Proposition 1E on the Nov 7, 2006 ballot in California. Restoration of levees in California's Central Valley is critical for flood prevention and protection of the system that delivers fresh water to urban areas and agriculture throughout the state. Maintaining and upgrading our existing flood control structures provides the most rapid and cost-effective flood control and reduces the need to build costly new flood control structures.

Yes on Propositions 1B, 1E; no on 1C, 1D - insidebayarea.
"We need to make a major investment in levees to avert a catastrophe akin to that which swamped New Orleans last year. We recommend a yes vote on 1E."
