Brown Reappoints Del Bosque to CA Water Commission

Yesterday, California Governor Jerry Brown announced the reappointment of Western Growers’ member Joe Del Bosque to the California Water Commission.  Del Bosque, a member of Western Growers since 1996, has served on the commission since 2010. The position requires Senate confirmation.  Western Growers strongly supports Del Bosque’s continued service on the commission. 

In 2014, Del Bosque and his wife hosted President Obama during a visit to California to discuss how the drought and water issues are plaguing Central Valley farmers and farm workers. 

Del Bosque is president of Empresas Del Bosque Inc. in Firebaugh, California, and is also a partner at J and G Contract Labor.  He serves as a member of the California Melon Research Board, the California Farm Bureau, and the California Latino Water Coalition.  Del Bosque is past chair of AgSafe, a non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of injuries and illnesses of workers in agriculture, and formerly served as a director of the Pacheco Water District and the San Joaquin Valley Drainage Authority.
