Spring Valley, CA  At its January meeting, the Otay Water District board of directors elected new officers to lead the District’s board for 2023.

The board elected director Mark Robak, who represents division five, as president. The board also elected board member Jose Lopez, serving division four, as vice president and Ryan Keyes, serving division two, as treasurer.

Robak’s election as president follows two years of board leadership under past president Tim Smith. Robak will serve as president through January 2024 when officer elections will again take place. He has served on the District’s board for 18 years since January 2005.

 “The District, its staff, and its board set a respectable example of providing exceptional service to its ratepayers,” says Robak. “I’m proud to be part of the leadership team to help achieve our mission of managing the District’s resources in a transparent and fiscally responsible manner with the goal of continuing to be one of the lowest water and sewer providers in San Diego County.”
