1.INVALIDATION of QSA
2. VALIDATION of QSA
Clearly there many questions to be answered with considerations for action. In either case it is the responsibility of the IID to be prepared. INVALIDATION will require a substantial and immediate effort to start a major and historical negotiation for a new document defining the future of the Imperial Valley. VALIDATION will require a well thought out plan to appeal the consequences of a profoundly political effort to trap IID in a fatally flawed contract that puts the burden of massive benefits for 22 million people on the backs of 170,000 valley citizens… A well thought out strategic plan ( strategy- tactics-management) must be on hand to set out our vision for a prosperous future with hope replacing the fear of multi billions of for cost overruns and environmental liability that can last a lifetime and destroy the valley.
Do you think Imperial Valley deserves the best professional help available?
IID is facing many very large experienced water institutions.
Why would IID want to validate contracts that rob it of well earned value ( desert miracle )
It might be helpful to review the actual values in play. Unfortunately IID receives mostly risk and uncertainty. The following is economic analysis which has largely been absent for 10 years. CONSEQUENCES OF QSA:
Do you think every effort should now be made to again invalidate the QSA ?
Would the court and the outside world look very favorably on IID if they hired MTO, one of the top Law Firms in the country. The leading partner, Ron Olson is not only one of the outstanding lawyers in the country, he owns and still manages a farm in Iowa..
His firm has powerful political connections at State and National level.. This firm is noted for imagination and expertise on complex contracts. Do Valley citizens deserve the best representation???
Should IID utilize an expert team to level playing field against many large and experienced water institutions – with unlimited capacity to continue to take water from Imperial Valley — to use powerful political lobby effort against us?
Should IID fully understand all its economic and financial options??? to date little economic input available!!! ( AWRI )
Should IID develop a respected and knowledgeable team to represent iid outside valley??
Should IID controlling most valuable water right in country—write the rules??? if not now, when?
Should IID follow lead of Director Hanks to capitalize value of valley assets with new ideas and profitable concepts?
Clearly lots of questions need almost immediate attention as IID evolves from old fashioned irrigation district to a modern Water Services Institution.– managing billions of Valley assets.( when your assets are worth many billions, clearly the old non-profit iid management model becomes obsolete ).for the benefit of the citizens of Imperial Valley….We need to bring the money back to the valley; this must be managed appropriately..QSA is a massive transfer of assets out of valley….We have 27 days to address this profound opportunity….
Everyone needs to be active…This is your valley. Support the IID board and encourage them to be fully prepared.
If you care enough to give the very best, do it now… Last best chance…
