BOARD APPOINTS INTERIM DIRECTOR FOR DIVISION 5:

Robert Parris Takes Oath of Office

PALMDALE – The Antelope Valley-East Kern Water Agency appointed Robert A. Parris of Lancaster, California, as Director of Division 5 at their regular board meeting of March 11, 2014. 

Robert Parris was born and raised in the Antelope Valley.  He served honorably as captain for the California Highway Patrol before becoming an attorney.  His experience with the Antelope Valley Fair Board and his association with many civic organizations make him uniquely qualified for this position. 

Robert Parris will fill the unexpired term of his predecessor, Andy Rutledge, who retired after serving 26 years on the Board of Directors.  After accepting his appointment, AVEK Attorney Michael Riddell administered the ceremonial oath of office; he then took his seat at the dais with the other directors.  The newly appointed director thanked the Board for their confidence in him, and he stated that he was looking forward to working with them.
