The Better Man
He speaks quietly and seems to always choose his words with care and caution. So when he speaks, he is respected and listened to. I know him to be a true and honest gentleman. He does have some challenging health issues, and has endured them with dignity and grace. Never once have I heard an excuse, or observed him being anything except professional. He has served our community for almost twenty years, never seeking any fanfare. The man I speak of is Mr. Paul Warda now serving on the Modesto Irrigation Board of Directors.
Mr. Warda has made an impact in recent months serving the ratepayers of MID that will live on well past his or my lifetimes. I see Paul Wardas performance as nothing short of heroic and courageous. He has been able to see thru what was past routine practices and understood that change was necessary. I for one am truly grateful, and we all should be as well.
I write this letter of gratitude because Paul Warda deserves to be recognized for his years of service, and the new direction for the Modesto Irrigation District that he played a huge part in.
I ran against Mr. Warda for his board seat in 2009. I, today have no regrets. I lost that election to a great board member.
