Commissioner Kurt Schlegel sits on the Elkhorn Ranch Metropolitan Water Board with Robert A. Lembke and is perhaps familiar with his water stealing ploys. Since the Elkhorn Metropolitan Water Board may be in negotiations with Elbert and Highway 86 Water District in future, it is incumbent that Mr. Schlegel recuse himself from voting in this matter and voting in regard to any other water districts while a County Commissioner. To do otherwise could cast suspicion on Mr. Schlegel's abilities and intentions as a public servant.
