Greg Young and Dan Jenkins selected to lead the WVWD Board of Directors


 

RIALTO, Calif. ­— The West Valley Water District (WVWD) Board of Directors has elected Greg Young as the new president of the board and Dan Jenkins as its vice president. Additionally, three members of the board were sworn in during the December 15 board meeting.

 

“I am honored and humbled that the board has put their trust in me to lead the District as its president,” said Young. “I am excited to help shape the future of the District and look forward to working alongside my board colleagues and staff to promote outstanding management of the District and ensure that our customers both now and in the future have access to safe and reliable water.”

 

Young most recently served as vice president and has been part of the board since 2015. He represents the communities of Bloomington, Rialto and portions of unincorporated San Bernardino County. Newly elected Vice President Dan Jenkins represents Division two, which includes the cities of Rialto, Fontana, Bloomington and portions of unincorporated San Bernardino County.

 

“I am thankful to the board for allowing me this privilege to serve our communities in a position of leadership,” said Jenkins. “As Vice President, I look forward to expanding our current initiatives and supporting President Young and the rest of the Board as we serve the community.”

 

Prior to this election, the board was led by Channing Hawkins, Director of Division 4. During his tenure, Hawkins worked to spearhead programs that have created job opportunities for the region, made strides in transparency and accountability throughout the District and helped to secure $2 million in grant funds for WVWD’s most vulnerable communities.

 

“I look forward to continuing to build on the successes of my predecessor,” said Young.

 

During the meeting, the WVWD Board of Directors also swore in several board directors. The board members include Board Director Angela Garcia serving Division 1, Board Director Dan Jenkins serving Division 2 and Board Director Kelvin Moore serving Division 3.
