Restore Affordable Water Announces Candidate Endorsement Process

Calls on Lone Star Groundwater Conservation District to publicly list candidates that have filed for office

CONROE, Texas — Restore Affordable Water today invites all candidates running for Lone Star Groundwater Conservation District (LSGCD) positions to participate in RAW’s formal endorsement process. 

“We invite all candidates for LSGCD to be considered for an endorsement and we will evaluate all candidates in a consistent manner,” said RAW President Simon Sequeira.

To be considered for an endorsement, candidates must formally apply for an interview by submitting the form on RAW’s website and completing a candidate questionnaire that will be emailed to them.

Due to pressure by RAW and our community, LSGCD finally called the Nov. 6th 2018 election. However, once again due to a culture of mismanagement and continued disregard for transparency at LSGCD, RAW is forced to demand that LSGCD publicly disclose on their website a list of candidates that have filed to run its board.

“Once again the LSGCD has no excuse for its procrastination and lack of transpaency,” continued Sequeira. “It is the board’s duty to inform the public about candidates for office and they have failed to do so,” stated Sequeira.

LSGCD has choosen to keep the public in the dark about the upcoming November 6th, 2018 election by not publicly disclosing on their website candidates that have filed for office.  The people of Montgomery County have a right to know who has offered themselves up to serve their interests on this important board.

Sequeira concluded, “Local political races are important and RAW takes this seriously.  We welcome candidates’ and the publics’ comments, questions and thoughts on these issues and look forward to having a robust debate on the issues and the future of LSGCD.”
