Rick is the representative of Santa Cruz Desal Alternatives on the WSAC. He is a former electrical contractor who used to look for ways that my clients could reduce energy consumption. Now I'm looking for ways my city can avoid the big energy impact of desalination. I would like our city to resolve its water challenges in a way that doesn't negatively impact future generations. Rick currently works as a marriage and family therapist and teacher with Nonviolent Communication Santa Cruz.
