OTAY WATER DISTRICT
Board of Directors – Division No. 4

JOSE A. LOPEZ
Incumbent/Retired Firefighter

Much has been accomplished during Jose’s 16 year tenure on the Otay Board. He served as President 7 times and implemented the latest technological advances and a Strategic Business Plan to provide ratepayers with a reliable, safe and fairly priced supply of water and sewer services. Recently the District successfully refinanced its 2007 Certificates of Participation saving its customers more than $5.6 million. Since 2007 staffing has been reduced from 174 to 135 saving the District $30 million. Jose’s commitment is to continue to reduce costs and pass those savings to its customers.

Jose is a Retired Assistant Fire Marshal for the City of San Diego and in response to the 911 terror attacks has worked with OWD staff to make security of our water system a high priority and understands the need for infrastructure development and its maintenance.

Jose has served his community well with 8 years on the Safety Commission and another 8 years on the Board of Appeals Commission for the City of Chula Vista. He is currently on the City of San Diego Metropolitan Wastewater Commission.

Jose wants one more term to help secure new sources of water such as desalination and more recycle water.

Vote for Jose Lopez, Otay Water District, Division 4.
