Doug Vagim has levied a constant barrage of criticism against the city of Fresno’s proposed water infrastructure and stability plan and each time his claims have been disproven. He has now repeated his tired, hollow, disproven rhetoric in a Feb. 25 op-ed in this newspaper.
Even worse, Mr. Vagim has failed to produce any “experts” that can refute the simple truth that the city’s plan is the most reasonable and affordable plan possible. All he can do is bark.
Why does Vagim continue to campaign against a plan that will modernize our water system, allow us to capture and use the surface water the ratepayers have already paid for and ensure Fresno’s water supply stability and independence for generations?
His crusade is not about what’s best for the city or our hardworking ratepayers, it’s about Doug Vagim. It’s about building his own profile, it’s about him running for mayor in 2016. That’s the only reasonable conclusion to be drawn from the press conferences and grandstanding trying to discredit the city’s water plan when all his unfounded claims have been proven wrong.
