New director appointed to Kern County Water Agency
Longtime family farmer Laura Cattani was appointed to the board of the powerful Kern County Water Agency during a special meeting on Monday.
She is the second woman to serve on the board of directors in the 60-year history of the agency.
Cattani will bring much needed diversity to the board, several directors said during Monday’s meeting, not only because she’s a woman, but also for her age. Cattani is 39.
“I’m the youngest member of this board and I’m 64,” noted Board President Royce Fast.
