In your July 30 issue, Mr. John Crossland of Paso Robles Agricultural Alliance for Groundwater Solutions was quoted as saying “we’re mad as hell and not going to take it any more.”
One wonders what “it” is. It couldn’t be the record profits generated for out-of-county landholders. It isn’t the hundreds of acres of new vine plantings each watered by a new huge agriculture well put in each year. It’s not the large war chest of funds available to influence opinion in the supervisor’s chamber.
Could the “it” which Mr. Crossland is “mad as hell” about be the role PRAAGS has had in the depletion of a resource critical to all North County residents becoming well known? Or is “it” the callous indifference of PRAAGS to other smaller landholders becoming even more widely acknowledged?
