Metropolitan Water District’s Board of Directors invites the public to help shape its search for a new general manager through participation in two virtual meetings to be held from 6-7 p.m. on Nov. 19,and from 10-11 a.m. on Nov. 21.
The open forums are part of a broad engagement plan aimed at gathering input from the public, member agencies, businesses, environmental groups, employees and other stakeholders on the background, experience and qualities desired to successfully lead Metropolitan following the retirement of longtime General Manager Jeffrey Kightlinger.
“The selection of a general manager is one of the most important decisions we can make as a board. It will shape the future of this organization,” Metropolitan board Chairwoman Gloria D. Gray said. “By including stakeholders in this process, we’re ensuring transparency and inclusivity while hearing their valuable and diverse perspectives.”
