Mesa Water Responds

GHPALS is a bit anarchistic and no one is responsible for checking the e-mail. We're too busy arguing with each other over books and stuff. 

No one checked the society's e-mail since last summer, we're embarrassed to say. We wouldn't have done it today if we hadn't changed all the passwords because of the Heartbleed Virus.

If you want to get our attention, write a comment. We pay attention to those.

We completely missed the e-mail sent to us by Mesa Water District's PR lady. We've redacted her name and contact information to protect her privacy (if you want to get in touch with her, go to Mesa's website). We thought it was a nice message and are embarrassed we had not replied to it in anything like a timely manner (9 months later makes us look bad). We apologized profusely in our reply. We also said we all drink Mesa water, which we do. Some of us, however, dilute it with spirits first.

My name is Xxxxxx Xxxxxx & I’m the Public & Government Affairs Manager at Mesa Water District.  This email is in reply to the post today (Fri. Aug. 2) on the Goat Hill Public Arts & Literary Society blog (http://ghpals.blogspot.com/2013/06/mesa-water-districts-new-logo.html).  It’s pleasing to know that you & your colleagues are following Mesa Water’s activities, & that you are aware of recent news about the District.

Mesa Water is indeed trademarking its new name & logo -- which involved a 2 ½-year effort in collaboration with Mesa Water’s constituents & consultants -- & the District anticipates announcing the approval of its trademark very soon (the report by the OC Register on this was unfortunately erroneous).  In any case, as of Jan. 1st, 2013, the District's name is Mesa Water District with "Mesa Water" for short (not "Mesa", the Register got that wrong too, among other inaccuracies).

Mesa Water hopes that these & other outreach efforts will result in customer awareness, community connections, & conversations like these.…
Meanwhile, Mesa Water remains financially strong -- with a AAA rating -- and will continue to provide high-quality, safe, reliable, and affordable water (still just 1 penny for 2 1/2 gallons) with 100 percent locally sourced supplies (which reduces the District's energy use and carbon footprint).  For more information, you can always visit our website at www.MesaWater.org.  Thanks again, & please feel free to contact Mesa Water any time.
