New Cox Water Bill is Too Little, Too Late
Hanford, CA – In light of TJ Cox’s failure of leadership, the David Valadao for Congress Campaign issued the following statement:
“Since taking office on January 3, 2019, TJ Cox has failed to take meaningful action to bring more water to the Central Valley. Now, with the election less than two months away, he is hoping to fool voters with a panicked attempt to cover his record of inaction on one of the most important issues facing our community. With just 15 legislative days left until the House recesses for campaign season, Cox has just now woken up to the Valley’s water needs.
David Valadao has been a leader on water since day one. On the very first day of the 115th Congress, David Valadao introduced H.R. 23, the Guiding Responsibility on Water Act, also known as the GROW Act, which works to make more water available to families, farmers, and entire communities in California.”
Additionally, Valadao himself issued the following statement:
“Central Valley residents are not fooled by this charade put on by TJ Cox. As a resident of the 21st district and a farmer, I have always known the importance of providing a reliable, clean water supply to the Central Valley’s farmers and families.
Now more than ever, Valley voters deserve a Congressman who will go to D.C. and fight for their needs all the time, not just when they need a vote.”
David G. Valadao represented the 21st Congressional District from 2013-2019, which includes Kings County and portions of Fresno, Tulare, and Kern Counties.
