My name is Margo Sturges, a Concerned Citizen, Citizen Advocate, Watchdog and now Retired. Some members of our community view me as a Citizen Activist.
The San Bernardino County Registrar of Voters approved my ballot designation of "Investigative Reporter."
I have written over 950 investigative stories about local politics over the past few years covering Yucca Valley, Twentynine Palms, Joshua Tree and San Bernardino County issues. My posts on Cactus Thorns and my stories printed in a Desert Hot Springs newspaper qualified me for that special ballot designation.
Thank you for your continued trust in me as your Friend, Advocate, Community Leader and as your Candidate for the Hi-Desert Water District.
I was honored with your support in the 2010 election receiving 1,901 votes.
I will need your support and vote once again.
I want to be your voice on the Hi-Desert Water Board.
I will bring my experience, knowledge and passion to the dais.
I will seek solutions to our water crisis as your representative.
I have no conflict of interest.
I will keep watch over your wallet.
HDWD Candidate Margo Sturges
For the past eight years, I attended all of the Hi-Desert Water Board meetings and their sub-committee meetings. I attended a few Joshua Tree, San Diego and San Bernardino County Water Forums. On a few occasions, I drove to Apple Valley to attend the Mojave Water Agency presentations on water issues.
For the past nine years, I attended most of the Yucca Valley Town Council meetings, the Town Strategic Planning Meetings and was a Planning Commissioner for the Town of Yucca Valley. I have been studying the data provided in all the Staff reports often paying for the full packet agendas out of my own pocket.
At these meetings, I ask questions on behalf of ratepayers and citizens. I am not afraid to ask the important questions because I care and I will not go away.
I am ready to step in as your representative on the Hi-Desert Water Board. I am well prepared and will bring my experience to the dais to seek solutions to our present crisis of the septic prohibition. The outrageous costs to each property owner may crush the economic health of our community!
I will be the voice of the General Public, the Seniors on fixed incomes and the less fortunate low income. I will be your voice. I know what "Survival Mode" is all about in this difficult economy because I have to make decisions on a daily basis living on a fixed income dealing with rising costs just to make it to the end of the month.
I would be happy to meet with your homeowner association, club luncheon or neighborhood picnic. Please be my voice at your church or when you are shopping in the supermarket asking your friends and neighbors to support me with their votes.
There are no big campaign dollars available for my run for office. I ask that you support me with word of mouth.

Thank you for visiting my website and thank you for your vote.
