LADWP proudly welcomed Cynthia McClain-Hill to the Board of Commissioners following her confirmation by the Los Angeles City Council on August 16, 2018. Appointed by Mayor Eric Garcetti, she will serve a four-year term, and replaced former Board Vice-President William W. Funderburk, Jr.
McClain-Hill has served on multiple local boards and commissions, including the City’s Police Commission and Community Redevelopment Agency, and was president of the National Association of Women Business Owners from 2008-2009. She is a widely respected attorney and public policy strategist, and is managing director of Strategic Counsel PLC.
“LADWP plays a very important role in the everyday lives of Angelenos, and I am thrilled to take on the challenge of helping to lead the Department into the future, protecting the interests of ratepayers and moving forward on the goals of the Mayor’s Sustainable City pLAn,” said McClain-Hill.
David H. Wright added, “I very much look forward to working with Commissioner McClain-Hill as we continue to focus on investing in our water and power infrastructure, improving our customer’s experience and transforming our water and power supplies to more sustainable resources.”
