    The idea of privatizing water services is deeply troubling to me. Water is a public trust and a human right, not a commodity to be bought and sold. Privatization often leads to higher prices and diminished service, disproportionately affecting the poor and marginalized. We must protect our public water services to ensure equitable access for all.

    I believe that water is a public good and a human right. Privatizing water services can lead to neglect of the most vulnerable populations and an emphasis on profit over access. The state must guarantee that all people have access to clean, affordable water.

    I am of the firm belief that privatization offers a more efficient and sustainable approach to managing water resources. Public water services often lack the innovation and investment capacity necessary to ensure the highest standards of water quality and infrastructure. Privatization incentivizes companies to improve services and manage supplies responsibly, ultimately benefiting consumers.
