PWD Di­rec­tor Wil­son due at coffee event series

Antelope Valley Press (Sunday) - - Front Page -

PALM­DALE — Palm­dale Wa­ter District cus­tomers are in­vited to meet with Di­rec­tor Don Wil­son to learn more about the District and its ser­vices on Tues­day in the third edi­tion of “Coffee with a Di­rec­tor.”

The gath­er­ing will run from 9 to 11 a.m. at Star­bucks, 280 East Palm­dale Blvd.

Palm­dale Wa­ter District will buy the first cup of coffee for com­mu­nity mem­bers at the gath­er­ing.

This is the third in a series of events, one with each of the five di­rec­tors, in­tended to pro­vide a ca­sual en­vi­ron­ment for cus­tomers to meet with their rep­re­sen­ta­tives to the Board and ask wa­ter-re­lated ques­tions.

For those un­able to at­tend in per­son, Wil­son will be on Face­book Live from 10 to 10:30 a.m. on the Palm­dale Wa­ter District’s page, @palm­dale­h2o. Also, writ­ten ques­tions may be sub­mit­ted as Face­book mes­sages to be an­swered dur­ing the broad­cast.

“As one of the new­est Board mem­bers, I am still learn­ing how I can

best help our cus­tomers,” Wil­son said. “I be­lieve the first step is meet­ing them and lis­ten­ing to their con­cerns. I en­cour­age peo­ple to come en­joy a cup of coffee with me and talk wa­ter.”

Wil­son rep­re­sents Di­vi­sion 2, an area that stretches to a small sec­tion that borders Palm­dale Boule­vard to the north and lies mainly south and west of cen­tral Palm­dale. The bound­aries are south of Palm­dale Boule­vard and Av­enue R west of 25th Street East, and south of Pear­blos­som High­way east of 25th Street East.

The di­vi­sion also in­cludes por­tions of Ju­niper Hills.

Wil­son was elected to a four-year term on the Board in Novem­ber.

A New York trans­plant who grew up in Simi Val­ley, Wil­son has lived in Palm­dale since 1987. He re­tired as a re­tail sales rep­re­sen­ta­tive in 2016 af­ter 28 years with Foster Farms. He also has restau­rant and ho­tel man­age­ment ex­pe­ri­ence.

Prior to his elec­tion to the Palm­dale Wa­ter District Board of Di­rec­tors, he was ap­pointed to the Palm­dale School District Per­sonal Com­mit­tee Board in Novem­ber 2017. That term ends in 2020.

The next “Coffee with a Di­rec­tor” will fea­ture Di­vi­sion 3 Di­rec­tor Gloria Diz­mang on Oct. 19.

Ear­lier edi­tions of “Coffee with a Di­rec­tor” fea­tured Di­vi­sion 4 Di­rec­tor Kathy Mac Laren and Di­vi­sion 1 Di­rec­tor Robert Al­varado.
