At political forum, Rob Wallace – candidate for US congress (District 2 Oklahoma) addressed the Comprehensive Water Plan, which he adamantly feels is not comprehensive enough because it ignores the greater value of non-consumptive use. He said that while the consumptive use of the water plan is talked about, the plan ignores the non-consumptive use or its ability to create jobs.
Wallace added that this so-called Comprehensive Water Plan is a misnomer because it ignores its greatest value; and therefore it certainly is NOT comprehensive.
The moderator’s question posed to this US congressional candidate was: “Do you think the Comprehensive Water Plan adequately accounts for the value of our water?”
Robert (Rob) Wallace, a democrat & Former Assistant US Attorney General is running for the office of US congress (2nd congressional district Oklahoma). His opponent is Marywayne Mullin – a republican & local plumber. The seat they both seek was held by democrat Dan Boren who is retiring & have held that seat since 2005. US Congressional district 2 of Oklahoma is the only democrat district in the entire state. Therefore, its imperative that the democrats hold on to that district, as the republicans are trying to turn the entire state Red to impair political balance. The election will be November 6, 2012.
