Letter: Retired Save Mt. Diablo Executive Director Supports Diane Burgis for Supervisor


Dear Editor:

Contra Costa County District 3 needs to elect a champion for our environment and quality of life for people living the county.  Diane Burgis – executive director of Friends of Marsh Creek Watershed and an elected Member of the East Bay Regional Park District Board of Directors – has a record of success in protecting the Delta, agricultural lands, open spaces, and wildlife.

Diane was recently inducted into the County Women’s Commission Hall of Fame.  She was named the Contra Costa Watershed Champion for her work in inspiring others to conserve our environment. She has been involved in the East Contra Costa Habitat Conservancy for 8 years and served on the Delta Protection Commission.

No other candidate has the environmental leadership experience she offers.   The League of Conservation Voters and Retired Assemblywoman Joan Buchanan endorse Diane, along with numerous environmental leaders including myself.

Voters that care about water, open spaces, and agricultural lands need to elect Diane Burgis for Contra Costa Supervisor.  She is the best candidate to represent residents of our community.  Visit her website at DianeBurgis.com.

Retired Executive Director, Save Mount Diablo
