I want to give a big 'thank you' to Doris Gentry, our newest Napa City Council person for the help she has given me.
Reading that the city is planning another increase in water rates, I had a number of questions stemming from the last rate increase in 2011 and from the city’s need to increase our water rates even though we have been required to use less water – the ultimate government Catch-22 – provide less service and charge more.
I asked Doris a number of questions and she quickly and professionally got the answers for me. Doris even went back to the city officials to clear up questions that arose from their previous data.
Over the years, I have tried to communicate with other city council persons and never had such friendly prompt and clear answers that Doris gives. We elected the right person.
