EWUA Retaliation

We have received multiple comments from people worried about EWUA retaliating against them if they speak up.

This is presented as an FAQ and is based on an actual email.

1. Will EWUA board members know who signed proxies?

2. Will all EWUA members (i.e. us, the water customers) know who signed? 

3. Will the general public know who signed? 

4. My only remaining barrier to signing isn’t whether I believe there is documented proof that corruption has occurred — the documentation I’ve seen clearly indicates a need for more rigorous transparency and accountability. If corruption is happening, it can mix poorly with accountability to create retaliation situations.  I need a clearer understanding of what my retaliation risks might be—EWUA or its members discriminating or retaliating against those who signed proxies.
