President Randy A. Record was like the mystery man from the old TV show, Charley's Angels, who appeared by phone from Los Angeles, where he is Chairman of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. Gary Kremlen, vice-president, who is a director on the board of Santa Clara Valley Water District, conducted the meeting. The Interim Executive Director for the finance committee, Brian Thomas, gave a report and answered a lot of questions that came from the directors of this new finance arm of the Joint Powers Authority whose goal is to build the underground twin tunnels from Clarksburg to Tracy—a distance of 35 miles with 40' in diameter tunnel tubes—large enough to fly a small plane through them and would cost over $20 billion. One University of Pacific School of Business professor estimates, with interest, it will be more like $67 billion that future generations will be stuck with paying if it becomes a reality. Critics like Barbara Barrigan Parrilla of Restore the Delta say it will ruin the largest estuary on the West Coast of the Americas—another case, when man tries to play God, whether it be in Yellowstone Park or the California Delta, he only makes it worse. (Read the book, Playing God in Yellowstone by Alston Chase.) Attorney Adam Kear also talked about the Brown Act and how it effects this new entity that will be handling a lot of money if things go their way. Video length: Approximately one hour.
