PLEASANT VALLEY MUTUAL WATER COMPANY 2019 BOARD NOMINEES
PAUL DEBUSSCHERE (Incumbent)
I have been a resident in the Camarillo Heights since 2011, and served as a director of Pleasant Valley Mutual Water since 2014. I have been involved with water issues for over twenty years through PVMWC and my agricultural operations. I currently serve as director for Oxnard Drainage District #2, and was a past director of the Ocean View Municipal Water District which served agricultural and domestic users in Oxnard. I have experience with shallow and deep water well facilities and pipeline similar to what conveys water to our homes and businesses here in Camarillo. I respectfully request to serve as a director, and look forward to representing you, the shareholders, for the upcoming term.
JAY DUNLAP (Nominee)
My name is Jay M. Dunlap and I'm running for a position on the PVMWC Board of Directors. Decades ago my father, Jesse M. Dunlap, was on the Board and currently my wife is serving on the Board. She will not be running, so I've decided to throw my hat in the ring. I grew up in the heights in a house on old Mesa Drive. I am a veteran of both the Army and Marine Corps. I'm a general contractor now and I've always had an interest in our community and how it uses its resources just like my dad did. I've always believed that you can only affect change if you attend meetings, voice an opinion, or better yet, run for office!
JAMES GRAHAM (Incumbent)
20 years PVMWC member, 25 years Las Virgenes Municipal Water District, various positions, mostly Public Relations with a focus on Water Reclamation, Water Conservation and Bio solids Composting. I could write a book, as could the other incumbents of our experience. Bill, Ed, Marilyn, and I are also Veterans of the Army and Navy.
Richard Groper (Nominee)
I intend to make myself a nominee for the Board of Directors of the Pleasant Valley Mutual Water Company. I would like to share with everyone my qualifications for the position. I am a political science professor at California State University, Los Angeles. One of my specializations is state and local government policy, of which water policy is one of my areas of focus. I have been teaching state and local government for about twenty years and have done research in the area. I believe that my expertise in the subject matter will be of great assistance to the Board. Moreover, I have had additional practical experience in the local policy arena, having served on local city boards and commissions in the former city in which i lived.
In addition to my professional qualifications, I would like to share a bit about my connection to the city of Camarillo. I have lived in Camarillo with my wife and two children for almost two years now. I am proud to call this great city my home. I would be honored to help serve the community by being elected to the Board of Directors of the Pleasant Valley Water Company.
Richard Groper, Ph. D
Warren (Bill) Manzer (Incumbent)
I am seeking re-election for the Pleasant Valley Mutual Water Company. In 2013 I told those at our Annual Meeting that I would retire at the completion of our mandated upgrade to our groundwater (desalinization plant) Along with our talented Board we had our grant for three-quarters of the cost of the plant could have it built no later than 2016. We then became entangled with the City of Camarillo's desalinization plans. I hope to be on the Board of Directors when our brine line is tied to their line and both plants are operating.
Edward (Ed) Saxey (Incumbent)
My general background by education and experience includes engineering and management. This has allowed me to positively contribute to issues brought before the board during the time i have been a member. I am a long time resident in the district, and support the many improvements planned for increased service while minimizing the cost impact to our shareholders.
