NY Times: CA Attorney General Calls Safe Drinking Water A Priority

NTC_Becerra.PNGThe New York Times solicited questions for Xavier Becerra last week, and they chose our question as one of only four reader questions that Becerra answered. That means The New York Times spent a quarter of the interview on safe and affordable water!

Our question was: "You’ve said that providing clean drinking water will be a top priority. How will you use the power of the attorney general’s office to ensure all Californians have safe and affordable drinking water?"

Mr. Becerra's response is excellent. It ends with: "In the 21st century, no American should fear serving their child the water from their home or school or any public place. That’s a priority and that’s my promise."
