Many people see the Montara Water and Sanitary District (know as “MWSD”) as a bulwark against rampant development in Montara and Moss Beach. That sentence alone will help you understand the excited posts on the Half Moon Bay Review’s online message board, TalkAbout, concerning this or that candidate. Other people see the MWSD as serving the needs of one political faction of the community rather than the community itself.
Both caricatures are, of course, just that. I look around my home in Montara and I see many new houses going up. So if the MWSD is a bulwark it is one with a large door in the middle of it. And if it is only serving the interests of small part of the community then the community is confused–the community keeps electing the incumbents year after year for well over a decade now.
In these videos each of the three candidates for MWSD introduce themselves to voters and share their own views of who they are, what the problems facing the community might be, and what they plan to do if elected.
Each candidate was given five minutes of screen time and their choice of location. Put aside the caricatures and listen to the candidates in their own words.
