The two successful candidates for the Cosumnes Community Services District (CSD) Board of Directors in the November election were sworn into office at the board meeting on Dec. 5.
Newcomer Jaclyn Moreno succeeded Rich Lozano, while incumbent Rod Brewer began his third term on the board. Lozano was elected to the Galt City Council last month and had his final CSD board meeting on Nov. 28. The two newly elected are beginning four-year terms, joining board members Gil Albiani, Jim Luttrell and Orlando Fuentes, who are midway through their current four-year terms.
Moreno and her family have lived in Elk Grove for 15 years. She engages in a variety of community service projects and owns and operates a local small-business as a school psychologist supporting special education students in public schools. Moreno says her two young daughters have blossomed because of their active involvement in many CSD programs.
Brewer lives in East Elk Grove and is a longtime active member in the community. Currently, Brewer is a Government Relations Advisor for Southern California Edison. Before working for Southern California Edison, he served over 15 years as a policy consultant and legislative aide to lawmakers in the California Legislature and the U.S. House of Representatives working on a broad range of issues.
At the Dec. 5 meeting, the board unanimously elected Albiani as the new Board President and Fuentes as Vice President, to serve in 2019.
Albiani is currently serving his fourth term on the Board and served as Vice-President in 2018.
“Our goals this year are focused around equity,” Albiani stated. “We will ensure equity and inclusion in our hiring practices, support policies that promote diversity, equity and inclusion, and extend program offerings to meet the needs of our diverse community.”
