Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Water may be one the most important public safety issue throughout the world.  Safe dependable drinking water is expected, yet any disruption from earthquake to infection can instantly become a widespread health and safety disaster affecting millions.  Additionally, this current drought has brought much attention to conservation, availability, and re-use.  Alhambra has its own water department.  While on the City Council, I have been instrumental in the construction of a $15 Million water treatment facility that has brought 3 wells back on line and increased availability to our community by more than 25%.  It is my hope serve on the Board of the San Gabriel Valley Municipal Water District to keep our regional water safe and clean while building and maintaining the infrastructure to meet future demands.   Your Vote is very much appreciated.  Thank you. Steve Placido
