(SACRAMENTO, CA – June 28, 2019) Gov. Gavin Newsom announced the reappointments today of Karla Nemeth as director of the California Department of Water Resources and Chuck Bonham as director of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
“EDF is pleased to see Gov. Newsom reappoint Karla Nemeth and Chuck Bonham to these important positions. At this critical time for California’s water supplies, it is important to have their experience and continuity. We look forward to working with Karla Nemeth and Chuck Bonham to build greater resilience in the state’s finite water resources.
