You cannot have people unless there is water. Given our state’s population of nearly 40 million people, and an agricultural industry of $50 billion that is famous for feeding the world, as Governor, water would be one of my top issues to address immediately, with fiscally sensible solutions that will greatly improve our water supply to farms and residents,” said Hewitt.
