COUNCIL JOINS TOP LEADERS TO DISCUSS CALIFORNIA’S WATER FUTURE
With a record dry January leading California into its 4th year of drought, Capitol Weekly and the University of California on Thursday held their annual Water Conference at Sacramento’s Masonic Temple. Bay Area Council Policy Director Adrian Covert spoke about the drought’s impact on urban businesses during a discussion with Assemblymember Henry Perea (D-Fresno); Jim Branaham, Sierra Nevada Conservancy; Chairman Bo Mazzetti, Rincon Band of Luiseno Indians; and Laurel Firestone, Community Water Center. The panel provided an excellent platform to discuss both the Council’s water policy objectives, and the water conservation efforts of member companies like Comcast, Genentech and AT&T.
