Few things are more important to us than working to assure the availability and quality of our water supply. Those are the most important objectives of the Tarrant Regional Water District.

For the past 13-plus years, I have attended -- as an interested public citizen -- almost all of the regularly scheduled open monthly board meetings of the TRWD. I have carefully observed the workings of the board members in their decision-making and oversight of the district's staff.

I am very favorably impressed with what they have done in accomplishing the district's goals and responsibilities. Among similar districts across the state and nation, the TRWD stands as a clear leader.

Local residents should be proud and grateful.

Therefore, for the May 11 election, I am pleased, without hesitation, to endorse for re-election the three incumbents on the ballot: Vic Henderson, Hal Sparks, and Jack Stevens.

-- Earl Alexander, Fort Worth
