MOULTON NIGUEL, CA, DEC 21, 2018 -- Moulton Niguel Water District welcomes Kelly Jennings and Bill Moorhead to its seven-member Board of Directors. Elected in November, Directors Jennings and Moorhead were sworn into office on December 12th, along with returning Board President Donald Froelich.
"Kelly and Bill have been valuable community leaders and we're excited for them as they transition to their new roles as Moulton Niguel Directors," said Moulton Niguel Vice President Brian Probolsky. "They're already hard at work finding ways to enhance our customer service efforts and contributing to the District's long-term service solutions."
Although they are new members of the Board of Directors, both Jennings and Moorhead are familiar faces at the District.

Moorhead, a Principal Water Engineer at the City of Anaheim, has served as a member of the District's Citizens Advisory Committee for nearly 20 years.
Having previously served on staff at Moulton Niguel in the past, Director Jennings says her election is a real homecoming.
"I am beyond thrilled to return to Moulton Niguel in this new role to continue my work on behalf of our many constituents," said Jennings, a resident of Laguna Niguel. "The District has a well-qualified Board of Directors and I am honored to work alongside my colleagues and our excellent staff to ensure our customers receive the highest quality water at the lowest possible rates."
Moorhead, who brings 42 years of water experience to the Board, praised Moulton Niguel staff for serving customers in an efficient, economical and environmentally-responsible manner.
"Moulton Niguel is well-known for having a top-notch and professional staff," said Moorhead, a resident of Mission Viejo. "As a Director, it is my job to make sure they have the tools, resources, and authorization to carry out their duties in a cost-effective manner. We want to be responsible with the use of public funds and prioritize infrastructure planning, maintaining high water quality, and positive customer engagement."
Moulton Niguel Vice President Duane Cave congratulated the new Directors on their elections and said that the District will also benefit from the continued service of Froelich.
"With many years of experience in the water industry, Don has helped guide the District's strong financial position, ten-year infrastructure investment plan, and relationships with neighboring water districts and public agencies," said Cave.
"Our Board will continue to work together to put our customers first, and also empower staff to use best practices in the industry to manage our water resources and local infrastructure," stated Moulton Niguel Board President Froelich.
