It was 50 years ago that Napa County supervisors took the brave vote to create the Ag Preserve.
With that beginning, land was set aside for agriculture, and within a few short years, the Napa Valley became known world-wide for wine.
After these years, it is becoming clear that vineyard agriculture is not the right choice for everywhere in the Valley. Clear-cutting our forested hills to plant vineyards turns out to be a threat to our climate, our air quality, and especially, our water supply. Vineyards use about 70 percent of our water, and the weather is changing to periodic droughts.
I am supporting Measure C , because it gives citizens the chance to protect our woods and hills. Voting Yes on Measure C is protecting our future, both for the vineyards and our homes.
