The politically muscular Westlands Water District is reinforcing its already estimable roster by hiring Rep. Devin Nunes' chief of staff.
Tulare native Johnny Amaral, the longtime top staffer for Nunes, will start May 1 as the water districts deputy general manager for external affairs. The newly created position will oversee the districts lobbying, governmental and media operations.

Birmingham said in an interview Thursday, adding that Amaral is in a unique position to help us try to develop a solution for our water supply shortages that will unify the entire Valley.
