Building and Construction Trades of LA/OC endorse Stacy Lynne Taylor for MWDOC, Division 4

The Los Angeles/Orange Counties Building and Construction Trades Council has endorsed Stacy Lynne Taylor for election to the Board of Directors for the Municipal Water District of Orange County (MWDOC), Division 4, serving the residents of Huntington Beach, Seal Beach, Costa Mesa, and a portion of Newport Beach.

The Los Angeles/Orange Counties Building and Construction Trades Council (LA/OC BCTC) is in the business of creating good jobs and lifelong careers. It is an umbrella group representing 48 local unions and district councils in 14 Trades. Membership in these unions totals more than 100,000 skilled men and women.

The LA/OC BCTC joins a growing list of bipartisan city, county, and statewide water district officials who have endorsed Ms. Taylor due to her effectiveness, leadership and teamwork. She is the only No Party Preference candidate for the nonpartisan MWDOC Division 4 seat.

A 20-year Huntington Beach resident and former businesswoman, Stacy is the Water Policy Manager at Mesa Water District (Mesa Water®), in Costa Mesa, where she has worked for over ten years. Stacy supports cost-effective and environmentally-sensitive improvements of Orange County’s vital water infrastructure to secure a sustainable water future for the region.
“Working as a water policy professional, I’ve seen firsthand how local, regional, state and federal policies can impact our water rates, rights and resilience” says Ms. Taylor. She continued, “I pledge to lead efforts to enhance Orange County’s water quality and reliability, while keeping rates as low as possible to ensure affordable drinking water for all.”

The MWDOC Board is a policy-making entity that has countywide responsibility for administering the transfer of surface water from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (Met) — headquartered in downtown Los Angeles — to all of Orange County. Met imports surface water from the Colorado River and Northern California.

As a dedicated water policy professional, Stacy plans to use her water industry experience — along with her economics education, and public information background — to: 1) advocate for fair water rates; 2) positively impact MWDOC’s transparency; and, 3) protect the water interests of all Orange County residents, businesses and communities.

In addition to her water experience, Stacy worked in the private sector for 25 years, including 10 years as principal of her own public relations consultancy. Her community commitment includes active involvement with various local organizations. For more information about Stacy’s qualifications, or to contact her, go to VoteStacyLynneTaylor.com.
