Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Change is inevitable in the water industry and we have an obligation and responsibility to our community to provide a safe, reliable and secure water supply. I will promote an entrepreneurial atmosphere with my fellow board members and work with the

Biografía

 

I grew up in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia where I received an AA degree in Engineering at Vanto Academy. Upon moving to San Diego in 1978, I began my 35-year career at Otay Water District, where I grew from an entry-level position to eventually become the Manager of the Public Services Department. Through decades of dedication and commitment to the public sector, I was able to successfully manage a large staff; demonstrate success with customers, developers, management and staff; mentor and coach developing employees, and manage over $5 million in developer accounts. I was instrumental in developing drafting and design standards for Otay Water District while also providing training and technical assistance to other engineers within the District. I have extensive experience in the development, management and administration of budgets, developer accounts, and contracts for large civil engineering and land development projects. I continue to be involved in the community through serving on the Board of Management as well as a member  of the Facilities committee and Chair of the  Energy Resources Committee for YMCA’s McGrath, Davis and Cameron Facilities in East County. I have lived in East County for over 35 years, working my entire career and serving the same community. I enjoy travel, golf, cooking, and exercising outdoors with my wife and two dogs. I have a passion for serving the public sector and look forward to continuing to do so in any way I can.

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

 

I will expect this agency to use management tools that are used in the private sector. It must have strategic goals to be technology oriented, customer friendly and fiscally responsible.

 

       An approach that I would advocate is to partner with other agencies to provide mutual assistance in addressing common issues or problems.

 

       Regional cooperation among water agencies is essential for facilities planning, resources development and emergency response.

 

Providing security to our precious resource is vital. Staff members must be trained to recognize and respond to threats as well as to identify areas of vulnerabilities.

 

       Water districts must be ready to respond to an emergency and District leaders and staff  need to be properly trained. This will make them effective and efficient when required to respond in an emergency.
