Thank you to all of you who supported my re-election. I am grateful to each and every one of you for helping contribute to another victorious win! Four years ago, you helped create a moment in history. I was honored to be elected to serve on the MWDOC board as:
Since 1951, the board has had a lot of directors, and to be frankly honest, I didn’t realize how much of an impact I was making simply by being these firsts, seconds, and thirds. I never turn down an opportunity to speak to the next generation, and I had given many presentations prior, but it really clicked when I spoke at Career Day for Breakthrough San Juan Capistrano.This program is committed to breaking the cycle of poverty through the power of education by supporting first-gen students from middle school through college graduation.
These kids weren’t that impressed with the fact that I was a female engineer or a business owner. The thing that resonated with them most was the fact that I was elected to represent their community as a woman of color – someone that looked different and understood firsthand what it meant to be part of an underrepresented group. Diverse perspectives and insights help foster greater innovation and better solutions long-term.
I’m honored to be re-elected to serve, and I thank you for your vote of confidence.
I am extremely grateful for the support of the Sierra Club and the Orange County League of Conservation Voters who are committed to continuing to help protect California's air, water, and wild places.
