The East County Voters for Equal Protect (ECV) is pleased to announce that Greg Enholm, Trustee on the Contra Costa Community College District (CCCCD), has joined the citizens action committee to help improve funding for the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District (ECCFPD).
Enholm is Vice President of the CCCCD Governing Board, and has served the district since 2012. His community involvement includes representing non-Concord residents on the Concord Naval Weapons Station reuse planning committee, and serving on the Ambrose Recreation and Park District Board.
“I’ll be happy to do this,” Enholm said when reviewing the ECV goals and plans with Co-Chairs Hal Bray and Bryan Scott. “We must solve this problem.
“I have adequate fire protection, I’m served by ConFire” continued Enholm, a Bay Point resident. “Why don’t you? We need to start the process to solve this problem.”
Enholm brings a diverse background to the ECV effort to improve ECCFPD funding. He has worked as a financial economist for the Wisconsin utility regulatory commission, a securities analyst at Merrill Lynch Mortgage Capital, Inc., and was a vice president at Salomon Brothers.
He subsequently established his own financial advisory firm and published two books on utility financial and regulatory issues. Enholm has been a high school math teacher in both public and private schools, and has taught math at Heald College. He is now a professor at DeVry University where he teaches economics, finance, mathematics and statistics. Enholm earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration and a master’s degree in economics from the University of Florida.
“Greg will provide invaluable insight into the operations of public agencies,” said Scott. “He communicates with zeal, and has a passion improving the world around him. We welcome his contribution to obtaining fire and emergency medical services for the residents of East Contra Costa.”
East County Voters for Equal Protection is a non-partisan grass roots citizens action committee formed to address the unequal funding of fire and emergency medical services existing in 249 square miles of Eastern Contra Costa County. About 110,000 residents, as well as those who work and play in Eastern Contra Costa, have services funded at a level one-fourth to one-third of those levels in other parts of Contra Costa County.
