At a Special Board meeting on March 10, 2016, the Rainbow Municipal Water District (RMWD) Board of Directors appointed two local residents to fill vacancies on the Board. These vacancies were created by the resignations of Director Bob Lucy from Division 4 and Director Jack Griffiths in Division 2.
After a six week application and review process, the Board considered a total of eight candidates for the Division 2 seat and four for the Division 4 seat. All of the candidates are required to live in the director division for the seat that they were interested in. At the meeting on Thursday, the three remaining Board members made the selections for both vacant seats.
The Board appointed Richard Bigley to serve as the Director for Division 2. Mr. Bigley is a long time local resident and longtime operator of an electrical services company in Fallbrook. Mr. Bigley has served on a number of local civic groups including the Fallbrook Hospital Board of Trustees, the Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce, and the Fallbrook Community Planning Group.
The Board also appointed Mr. William Stewart to serve as the Director for Division 4. Mr. Steward is currently a Director on the Pala Mesa Village Homeowners Association and has many decades of experience in the development of water and wastewater projects for several communities across California.
“We had so many great candidates it was hard to make the final selection,” said RMWD Board President Dennis Sanford. “On behalf of the Board I want to thank everyone who participated in this process.”
Both of the seats that were appointed on Thursday will be up for re-election this November.RMWD Press Release Two New Board Members (003).pdf
