Born and raised in Arizona, I know firsthand how important water is to our way of life. It is the very thing that makes this desert so hospitable. As kids we played in it and as parents, we ask our kids to conserve it. But it is much more than that.
In my day-to-day business of running our family-owned real estate brokerage, I am often asked by clients relocating to Arizona, do we have enough water for all these people? And over 20 years I have formulated great responses to this very difficult question. The simple answer is yes. We use less water in Maricopa County today than we did in the 1970’s, all while our population has increased sixfold. This is not to say we don’t need to be good stewards of our water. But it does prove an important fact – with good planning and long-term vision we can provide for our children a future that is as fun and bright as the past we grew up with in Arizona.
As a board member of the Central Arizona Water Conservation District, I will commit my time and efforts to continuing the legacy of well-run water management in our great state of Arizona, by embracing the legacy my family has taught me – utilizing our water safely and effectively for the betterment of Arizona’s future.
