Key water leadership position in Kern County upended
A powerful water position changed hands unexpectedly Thursday when longtime Kern County Water Agency Board President Ted Page lost his post to fellow director Royce Fast.
A typically routine annual election of officers took a dramatic turn as Page, visibly upset, opened the meeting, then stood and said he …”never intended to create a situation where people were so pressed and so emotional about making this decision. It’s just life and it goes on. But I never wanted someone to be so pressured they just couldn’t take it.
