Business Meeting

President Cheryl Brothers announced that the position created by the resignation of Director Connie Buenaventura will be filled by the Board at their April 4th meeting. The two nominees to date were introduced: Jerry Brown (2009-2010) and Roy Baker (2011-2012).



Joe Quiros introduced Bill Hunt, Executive Director of the Orange County Groundwater Authority.  Mr. Hunt identified Joe as his first supervisor and thanked him for his guidance.

Mr. Hunt’s instructive talk was an Orange County geology and history lesson that was interesting to all. He was successful in relating many of the below ground features of the Santa Ana River basin to the above ground terrain with which we are all familiar.



Among the many attendees were Joe and Tina Deaton, Pat and Steve Coakley and Dee Mehta. Tina, Pat and Dee were members of the 2002 – 2003 panel.





Also present were: John Swett (1998 – 99), Carol Duensing (1989-90 and 1991-92) and Charles Mitchell, Jr. (1999-00). Carol is parliamentarian for the present Board.
