Water: Non-partisan but totally political
It's something many of us take for granted -- water. Water is like liquid gold for Texans -- incredibly valuable for life and economics.
Only 5 months after Hurricane Harvey soaked the state, much of Texas is back in the grips of drought. Some parts of the state haven't had measurable rainfall in more than 100 days.
What are the arguments around water? Who is involved, and more importantly, what can be done to manage this precious resource now and into the future? Come hear our speaker, Jo Karr Tedder, discuss this and other issues surrounding water.
About our speaker:
Jo Karr Tedder is President of CTWC, an organization she and a small group of advocates founded in 2011. The group grew from her experience on LCRA’s Water Management Plan Stakeholder Advisory Committee in 2010, when it came to light that Highland Lakes businesses and residents were not at the table in water- use planning.
Jo Karr is a recognized authority on water issues and regularly speaks on behalf of the need for changes to how water is managed and valued. She is a native Texan, a former educator and education administrator, and a political consultant.
After living and working on the East Coast, she returned to Texas and has resided on Lake Buchanan since 2001.
