Do the right thing

I appreciated the Perspective from the San Jose Mercury News in the July 14 paper outlining the overall view of our statewide water shortage.

I hope everyone in the county reads it and recognizes the need to cooperate with the State Water Resources Control Board and the governor’s emergency drought proclamation for the good of us all. No one entity is exempt or entitled to more water than another. It is up to each faction to “do the right thing.” I fear that not making the right decision is now the worst thing that you can do for the state.
