Three Republicans of MWDOC Vote to Appoint Liberal Democrat to Board Vacancy
From a June 5, 2019 MWDOC press release:
MUNICIPAL WATER DISTRICT OF ORANGE COUNTY APPOINTS ROBERT R. MCVICKER AS DIRECTOR OF DIVISION THREE
Fountain Valley, CA (June 5, 2019) – The Municipal Water District of Orange County (MWDOC) has appointed Robert R. McVicker, a semi-retired civil engineer with a long history in the water industry, as Director of Division 3. Director McVicker will fill the seat formerly held by Wayne S. Osborne, who retired in April 2019. Director McVicker will represent the areas of Cypress, Fountain Valley, Los Alamitos, Stanton, Westminster, the western portion of Garden Grove, and nearby portions of unincorporated Orange County.
The board of MWDOC has an overwhelmingly Republican majority
There were 9 potential candidates for this vacancy appointment, 7 were Republican and 2 were Democrats.
Larry Dick, Sat Tamaribuchi, and Jeff Thomas led the effort and chose to appoint a Democrat with no elected history over well qualified Republicans with long records of public service.
This is a poor decision to give up an opportunity to fill a seat and fill it with a Democrat. Larry, Sat, and Jeff are responsible for giving the liberal Democrat party a foothold in these communities. They are responsible for expanding the political bench of a party that is interested in open borders, expanding socialism, and ruining the state financially.
