This is a copy of information submitted to elections officials by the candidate

Dear Voters. Clean water and sanitary sewage disposal are the cornerstone of our public health infrastructure. I am a candidate for Division 4 Director of the Thermalito Water and Sewer District because I believe that my experience in environmental affairs will be an asset to the board.

I am a Retired Environmental Health Specialist, with over 25 years experience in water quality, sewage disposal, pollution prevention, & public health issues. I was employed by public health departments from 1982 - 2011 in Butte, Sacramento, San Joaquin, & San Mateo counties in California and also in the State of Indiana. As a partner with the San Mateo Countywide Stormwater Pollution Prevention Program, I worked with sewer districts, water suppliers, the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board, county agriculture commissioner, and public works departments to prevent polluting discharges to the ecosystem and investigated spills of hazardous materials and oversaw cleanup activities. As manager of the Sacramento Area Sustainable Business Program, I assisted the Sacramento Regional Water Authority, encouraging businesses to conserve water and reduce sewer discharges. I received two medals of honor from the County of Sacramento for my pollution prevention activities.

A resident of Thermalito since 2001, I'm a USAF veteran and earned my B.A. at Purdue University.

Thank you for your vote.
