GOVERNANCE

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Pico Water District is a county water district formed under the County Water District Law, set forth in Division 12 of the California Water Code. The District is a public agency known as a special district, rather than a private company. The District is governed by a five-member board. The Directors are elected by registered voters who reside within the District’s service area. The Board of Directors establishes District policy and makes decisions based on the District’s mission statement, goals and operational needs. The Board’s policies are administered and implemented by the General Manager, who is hired by the Board. Board elections are held every two years and Directors serve a four-year term of office. Terms are staggered to ensure continuity.

David Gonzales, President

David Gonzales is a lifelong resident of Pico Rivera and a graduate of El Rancho High School. First elected to the Board of Directors in 2011, Gonzales has focused on upgrades to the district’s water delivery system and installation of treatment facilities to protect the groundwater supply.

In addition to serving on the Pico Water District Board of Directors, Gonzales has volunteered at Saint Hilary’s Catholic Church and has been a member of the Knights of Columbus for more than 20 years.

Victor Caballero, Vice President

Victor Caballero was born in Pico Rivera and has spent his life here. He worked as a Maintenance and Operations supervisor for El Rancho Unified School District before retiring. Caballero is a strong supporter of schools and has served as president of the El Rancho Booster Club and California School Employees Association and was a member of the El Rancho Administrators and Supervisors Association for Classified Employees.

He was first elected to the Pico Water District Board of Directors in November 2009 and remains committed to helping the District update pipes, equipment and technology to improve service and reliability.

Robert A. Martinez, Director

Elpidio “Pete” Ramirez, Director

After attending Rio Hondo College in Whittier and serving in the U.S. Navy, Pete Ramirez settled in Pico Rivera, where he has lived since the late 1960s. He has a long history of serving the community, working as a police lieutenant and deputy U.S. Marshal before retiring.

Ramirez has dedicated his life to public service. He served on the Pico Rivera City Council for 10 years, including two terms as mayor, and the El Rancho Unified School District Board for 17 years, with three terms as president. Ramirez was first elected to the Pico Water District Board of Directors for a single term in 2013 and was elected to his current term in November 2020.  He wants to ensure the District operates in a fair and transparent manner.

Raymond Rodriguez, Director

As a Pico Rivera resident for more than 48 years, Raymond Rodriguez has strong ties to the city. He graduated from El Rancho High School in 1989. He considers his service on the board a way to give back to the community.

Rodriguez possesses nearly three decades of experience in the water industry, starting his career as a pipeline contractor in 1994. Since then, he has worked in sales management, project management and as an administrator in the water industry. That knowledge and his community connections help him keep Pico Water District focused on delivering high quality water at fair and equitable rates.
