Jeff Denham Fails to Join Letter Advocating for Central Valley Farmers


 

(Modesto,CA) -- Once again, Jeff Denham failed to act in the interests of Central Valley farmers, declining to join four members of Congress in calling on Sacramento to halt the Delta Tunnels project, which will send massive amounts of water to Southern California.

Congressman Denham failed to sign onto the letter just weeks after taking a controversial vote which would fast-track the Delta Tunnels, sending water away from the Central Valley. Denham took the vote after accepting contributions from influential Kern County farmers who would benefit from the tunnels being built.

Josh Harder released the following statement:

“Denham talks a big game on water but he fails once again to advocate for the Central Valley’s interests and condemn the Delta Tunnels when it really matters. Denham’s silence on the issue, paired with his vote to fast-track the Delta Tunnels after accepting thousands in campaign donations from Kern County farmers, shows how out of touch Denham is with the Central Valley.”
