Kudos go out tonight to Oakley Councilwoman Diane Burgis who was sworn in to the Delta Protection Commission in Stockton tonight. This is a great thing for not only the Delta, but for Contra Costa County.
Contra Costa has an “A” team fighting for the Delta as Burgis will join Senator Mark DeSaulnier, Assemblyman Jim Frazier, and Supervisor Mary Piepho.
About the Delta Protection Commission
The mission of the Delta Protection Commission is to adaptively protect, maintain, and where possible, enhance and restore the overall quality of the Delta environment consistent with the Delta Protection Act, and the Land Use and Resource Management Plan for the Primary Zone. This includes, but is not limited to, agriculture, wildlife habitat, and recreational activities. The goal of the Commission is to ensure orderly, balanced conservation and development of Delta land resources and improved flood protection.
