Through her works at the Family Water Alliance, Ashley Indrieri has been the voice for landowners on issues affecting water rights, private property rights and rural agricultural communities.

March 14th, 2014 marked Indrieri’s last day with the Family Water Alliance.

Friends, colleagues, Family Water Alliance Board Members and Colusa County Board of Supervisor members joined in honoring Ashley Indrieri during a farewell luncheon at Louis Cairo’s in Williams on March 7th, 2014.

Indrieri who has served as the Family Water Alliance executive director for the past seven years is leaving to join the Pacific Legal Foundation.

Pacific Legal Foundation is the first and oldest conservative and libertarian public interest law firm in the United States. It was established for the purpose of defending and promoting individual and economic freedom in the courts.

Indrieri will be working with the firms handling grant writing and communication.

“I will be essentially doing the same work,” said Indrieri, “the only difference is that I will have additional resources to advocate for property rights and individual liberties through a different branch of government.”

In the Board of Supervisors’ proclamation presented to Indrieri by board chair Kim Vann and Supervisor Denise Carter the county recognized her for her extensive years of volunteer public service on behalf of Colusa County as an outspoken advocate for the county’s concerns; particularly with respect to flood protection for rural communities, Berryessa Snow Mountain National Wilderness designation, Williamson Act preservation, private property rights and Integrated Regional Water Management Plan develop.

“I fought tirelessly on the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Wilderness designation issue,” said Indrieri, “the bill would designate approximately 319,300 acres of federal land, creating more regulatory red tape, and limiting the use of our public lands.”

As a parting gift for Indrieri, the FWA directors presented her with a silver charm bracelet with a starter charm engraved with the letters FWA.

In 2013, Indrieri was name 3rd Assembly District Woman of the Year by Assemblyman Dan Logue.

At that time, Logue praised Indrieri for her outstanding spirit of civic engagement, and said that she has served as an inspiration to those around her.

“She helped make Colusa County and the North State a better place, and she is respected for her dedication to local issues and her avid work making her a great choice for Woman of the Year,” Logue said.

“It is humbling to be supported by the community,” said Indrieri, “I have been overwhelmed by the support that our organization has received over the years and how passionate people are over these issues is amazing.”

Indrieri leaves her legacy to continue through her replacement, Nadine Bailey.

“Nadine will have to hit the ground running,” said Indrieri, “with our state in a drought, these years are more important than ever.”

Ashley Indrieri and her husband Supervisor Tom Indrieri will soon be relocating to Lincoln California with their son Quinten and twin daughters Ava and Addison.
