Concord – During the Board meeting on April 6, Contra Costa Water District’s Board President, Lisa M. Borba, announced that she will resign from the Board effective April 22, 2022, after 12 years representing the community on water issues.
Lisa M. Borba, AICP, was first appointed to the Contra Costa Water District’s Board of Directors in April 2010 and has successfully been elected to the office since. She represents Division 1, which includes the cities and communities of Concord, Pacheco, Clyde, Bay Point, and Pittsburg. She has served as Board President since 2016.
Borba’s professional experience put her in close contact with public agencies, and she has used that experience to set policies that prioritize customer interests, basing decisions on the present needs of community now and for the future. Borba worked as a Land Planner for Blackhawk Services in Danville for 13 years and for Brookfield Homes or the past two years.
In her tenure on the Board, her highest priorities have been the responsible management of public money and providing quality customer service.
As Board President, Borba facilitated robust and thoughtful discussions on future infrastructure investments to improve the Contra Costa Canal and complete the next phase of expanding Los Vaqueros Reservoir. She noted that “transparency in how public dollars are being spent is paramount when looking at investing millions in infrastructure for safe and reliable water service for the future.”
“Over the past 12 years, this Board has worked together cooperatively and productively to make tough decisions in the interest of our customers,” said Borba. “It has been my honor to represent the customers of Contra Costa Water District.”
When asked about the timing of her retirement, Borba responded, “This was a tough decision, but the District is in good hands with this Board and this staff. I am excited about the initiatives underway to advance the good work serving the needs of our customers.”
Borba’s last day will be April 22, and the Board will need to decide to fill the vacancy for Division 1 by appointment or election.
