Last Friday, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced that Karla Nemeth has been reappointed as director of the California Department of Water Resources, which is a position she has served in since 2018. Western Growers, as well as many other ag and water organizations, strongly supported Nemeth’s reappointment.
Nemeth has extensive experience in the water industry. Her previous work history include deputy secretary for water policy at the California Natural Resources Agency from 2014 to 2018 and Bay Delta Conservation Plan program manager at the California Natural Resources Agency from 2009 to 2014.
Newsom also reappointed Charlton “Chuck” Bonham as director of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
