Len Price presents at 2015 Water Conference
As keynote speaker at the 2015 Water Conference in Saint Paul, Executive Director Len Price shared his “Reflections on Water,” which included some history of water issues and policy in the metro area. With many years as a teacher under his belt, Price expected to focus on education issues when he was first elected as a state representative in 1983. He found out quickly that challenges with water use and management were more important to his constituents, and he got a crash course in related issues and policies. Price shared his experiences working directly with constituents and the legislative process, and encouraged the audience to become active in policy related to water issues, whether through direct advocacy at the Capitol or public education.
