Dead Mud Walking

A ballot measure that would create a Municipal Utility District has so many legal flaws, it's all but DOA. In fact, passing the measure might delay the advent of public power here for years.

The result is that the MUD will, in all probability, be chained in lawsuits if the supervisors declare it a winner in November. Because of the linkage in legislative language, its "companion" measure, the water and power agency, is also likely to be paralyzed at birth by legal challenges. And because its strongest supporters will have helped to put it into that legal limbo, public power may remain, for many years, so near, and yet so far away.
