GIANTS ACE SERGIO ROMO PITCHES DROUGHT MESSAGE; WATER COMMITTEE MULLS NEW APPROACH
The Bay Area Council helped pull together the San Francisco Giants and the state’s Save Our Water campaign to shoot a new drought awareness public service announcement with Giants All Star pitcher Sergio Romo. The PSAs, recorded in both English and Spanish, will air both during games at AT&T Park and across Northern California media markets due to a generous contribution of airtime from Bay Area Council member Comcast.

The following day, Karla Nemeth, Deputy Secretary for Water Policy at the California Natural Resources Agency, joined the Bay Area Council Water Committee to discuss recently proposed changes to the Bay Delta Conservation Plan, now known as the California Water Fix http://www.californiawaterfix.com/. Following the presentation and Q&A, the committee voted to move forward developing a new draft emergency water plan. The Water Committee is co-chaired by Jim Levine, Managing Partner, Montezuma Wetlands, LLC, and Andy Ball, West Coast President, Suffolk Construction Company.
