Helix Board Secretary swears in three returning board members.

Division 1 Director Daniel H. McMillan, Division 3 Director Mark Gracyk and Division 5 Director Joel A. Scalzitti received certificates of election following the administration of the oath of office today.

The oath of office took place outside of the district’s administration building in the newly planted WaterSmart demonstration landscape.

Director McMillan and Director Scalzitti received a majority of votes in their respective divisions during the November 2020 election.  Board President Gracyk ran unopposed.

Their terms will expire in December of 2024.

Helix is governed by a five-member board of directors. Each director is elected by the communities in which they reside to oversee district policies and represent Helix on regional and state-level water resources management and policymaking. Members of the board serve four-year terms.

The directors will elect new board officers at the December 9, 2020 board meeting.
