Welcome

Hello, I’m Bruce Herring. I’m running for the NID Board because I feel the current board lacks the vision and expertise to take on the challenges of the 21st century.

Water managers face a slew of unprecedented issues with increasing populations, variable precipitation patterns, expanding regulations, and a shrinking Sierra snowpack.

To address these challenges we need to be nimble and flexible in our approach.  Nimble operationally, nimble fiscally, and nimble in our vision for the coming decades.  I have experience in each of these areas.  Operationally as the Materials Manager in a manufacturing firm.  Fiscally as the director of Bitney Prep High School, where I balanced school budgets during a time of state cuts to education.  I’ve run a small business and have been actively following water issues for forty years.

It is time to move toward a more all encompassing vision for NID.  I believe NID can become a regional leader in watershed management.  The plan or “blueprint” to accomplish this is centered around the following five pillars: 

  •  FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY 
  •  OPEN COMMUNICATIONS AND TRANSPARENCY
  •  A HEALTHY WATERSHED FROM TOP TO BOTTOM
  •  EFFICIENCY OF OPERATIONS
  •  COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Working together “we” can make this happen.   I ask for your support!
