Willie Brown: drought helping tunnel foes

That’s counter-intuitive — I assumed the drought was strengthening the tunnel case — but Brown lays it out in a brief item in the San Francisco Chronicle.

“Sharing is something you do in a time of abundance,” he writes. “You really don’t want to be in a position of telling one part of the state it has to share water when there’s a shortage.

“Especially when it’s in an election year and your approval rating is at 46 percent.”

If Brown is right, the governor will put off the water bond vote, perhaps until 2015.
