As a Director of the Board, my responsibilities include shaping water policy, establishing rates and rate structure and providing overall guidance and direction for the East Valley Water District and the 100,000 rate payers of the District serving Highland, part of San Bernardino and Mentone.
Redlands High School Mock Trial
My wife Jennifer and I have coached at RHS for the last three years. The 2012-2013 Blue team had an overall record of 11-2 for the season and made it to the state competition as a wildcard team, where it represented San Bernardino County in the California Mock Trial State Finals. The team finished second place in California! The 2013-2014 Blue team won the San Bernardino County championship and finished 16th in the state. The 2014-2015 RHS White Team made it to the County Finals, where they were met with fierce competition by sister team RHS Blue who will compete in the State competition in March.
The Wildlands Conservancy
As a member of the Board of Directors, it is an honor to provide guidance and direction to one of California's leading nonprofit environmental organizations. TWC owns California's largest nonprofit nature preserve system with preserves spanning the state that are open to the public free of charge. Wildlands funded the largest conservation land gift to the American people in US history in 1999. The Conservancy also prioritizes outdoor education programs for children.
Give Big San Bernardino County
I chaired the inaugural 2014 Give Big campaign, San Bernardino County's first 'give day' that raised $548,000 in 24 hours on May 8th benefitting SB County's local nonprofits and charitable organizations which included the involvement of 300+ volunteers to benefit the 261 participating local nonprofits.
