At its January 5, 2016, public meeting, the Oro Loma Sanitary District Board unanimously voted to appoint Rita Duncan to its vacant seat. Duncan, who took the oath of office and assumed her responsibilities at the meeting, fills the board vacancy generated by the resignation of Director Howard Kerr. Her term in office will expire in December 2016, after the general election.

Duncan has more than 30 years of professional experience, including performance management, employee training, human resources compliance, safety, wellness and organizational development. She is currently the director of human resources for Pentair Thermal Management in Menlo Park, Calif. Prior to working with Pentair, she was the director of the Mathematics, Engineering, and Science Achievement Program for the Stanford University School of Engineering.

Director Duncan possesses a Bachelor of Arts degree in human services and a Master’s Degree in counseling psychology from Notre Dame de Namur University.

“I have spent much of my life working and serving on the peninsula, west of my home in Hayward,” said Director Duncan shortly after taking the oath of office. “I sought this position to align my service with the community where I live. I appreciate the successful record of safety and environmental stewardship Oro Loma Sanitary District has achieved. I look forward to working with my fellow board members to achieve even higher levels of customer service and protection of the San Francisco Bay.”

“Our decision was difficult to make because several highly qualified and talented individuals applied for the open seat,” said Oro Loma Sanitary District President Timothy P. Becker. “We ultimately selected Rita Duncan because her education and professional background—which includes human resources, organization dynamics, and safety—compliments the existing strengths of our board. It seems that the best decisions come from a wide range of perspectives and opinions. Rita’s professional background provides a unique perspective that will help the board best serve our community.
