My name is Emerson Drake. I’ve lived in Modesto for over 30 years and have a continuing interest in local politics. Most of us don’t go to Modesto City Council, County Board of Supervisors, and Modesto Irrigation District meetings, along with their various committee meetings. I try to attend as many as possible, and those I might miss I try to watch on streaming video. I’ve been referred to in the media as a community watchdog, neighborhood activist, political pundit, and a political muckraker. I prefer to think of myself as a concerned, engaged citizen.
Several people make up Eye On Modesto and all us of try to give you another take on not only what happens at these meetings but what’s going on behind the scenes.
As Margret Mead was quoted…
Never doubt a small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
Please join us, won’t you?
