From The Fresno Bee, in a commentary by former California Secretary of State Bill Jones:
“In California, managing water resources requires managing volatility. We know we’re going to have wet cycles, and we know we’re going to have droughts. The challenge is preparing ourselves for those inevitable events. Our forefathers did a great job in this respect.
“Fifty years ago, President Kennedy and Gov. Edward “Pat” Brown flew over my farm on their way to dedicate the San Luis Dam. I remember seeing the helicopters and my father saying they’re bringing water to the best farmland in the world.”
