EL CENTRO — Recently three members of the Imperial Irrigation District Board of Directors let go of their political appointees to a district committee that left the chairman of said committee charging the move “further drove a wedge between Imperial Valley farmers and the IID board.”

All three directors — Erik Ortega, Norma Sierra Galindo and Alex Cardenas — said last week they don’t believe the move drives a wedge between the farming community and the IID board; rather, each had their own different reason for reappointing the positions to the district’s Water Conservation Advisory Board and that it was not a move meant to send a message.
