His opponent is an employee of Jordan District. School employees of both districts are ineligible to seek a seat on their own district’s board.

As a third parched summer forces farmers to fallow fields and lay off workers, two water districts and a pair of landowners in the heart of the state’s farmland are making millions of dollars by auctioning off their private caches.
