Community Activities

Vice President & Member of the Board of Directors, California Association of Sanitation Agencies (2011–current)


I have served the Oro Loma Sanitary District as a Director since August 2007. As a result of the decisions of very capable District staff and other Board members, sewer rates remain the lowest of any other sewer district in the state of which we are aware. Additionally, we continue to receive awards for safety, innovation and efficiency from several organizations.  As such, the District is solid financially and otherwise.  I have been fortunate to be elected to the California Association of Sanitation Agencies Board of Directors and recently elected Vice President giving Oro Loma meaningful influence at the state level.  I have lived in the Fairview area of Oro Loma for over 32 years.  I am an Army veteran, have a business degree from the University of Texas El Paso, a Master of Science degree in Geology from the University of Oregon, and over 30 years of experience in the environmental services industry, including work related to wastewater, solid waste, and recycling.  I feel my experience and education help me to continue to be a positive influence for the District into the future.  I would appreciate your vote.  Feel free to contact me at 510.581.3597 or
