This Fall, it was easy to run for a board seat again at Triunfo Sanitation District. That is because no candidates stepped up to challenge me or fellow incumbents, Mike McReynolds and Steve Iceland. So, we were appointed “in lieu” of election by the Ventura County Board of Supervisors.
In the photo, we are getting sworn in by Triunfo Clerk of the Board, Josie Guzman at our board meeting on November 24.
Yes, continuing on the board was much easier this year compared to fall of 2010, when there was a field of 13 running for 3 seats! Happily, I received more votes than the other candidates by quite a margin back then! So, I assume it would have been fun to run again this fall and be able to get water and water treatment issues discussed in The Acorn, but sometimes, you just get to take it easy.
Please know that I am grateful for another 4 years! I will do my best to consider and work for beneficial courses of action for Triunfo, Oak Park Water Service, and the partnership we are in with Las Virgenes Municipal Water District. With the California drought, these are challenging times for water and water treatment agencies, but, because of that, there is a lot of innovation happening, too.
I’ll continue to let you know what is going on…
