There has been a recent change within the Director at Large position amongst the Board of Directors. With the resignation of Sandy Birkholz, the Board has appointed Joseph Bruna to fill the remainder of her term.
We thank Sandy for her hard work and welcome Joe to the team.
Here is a welcome message from Joe:
“As a third-generation resident of Redwood Estates, I look forward to serving and supporting the people of this community. I will apply my decades of experience in disaster response and fire safety from my long career as a firefighter, emergency services manager, and logistics planner to my role on the RESA Board of Directors. It is my hope to improve existing community disaster plans and strengthen our communities’ capability in times of adversity.
My family and I were active in our local 4-H Club for many years and I’ve held multiple leadership positions with other non-profit and volunteer organizations; this has helped form my wide-ranging perspective on working with people.
My motivation in seeking appointment to the RESA Board of Directors is simple: it is to serve and benefit my neighbors and friends of Redwood Estates and to make this a better place to live.
I look forward to working with all the people of Redwood Estates.”
