New San Diego County Water Authority Director Joins Metropolitan Board

Community leader and Vista Irrigation District board member Marty Miller has been seated as one of four delegates representing the San Diego County Water Authority on the board of directors of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California.

Miller took his seat during a special board meeting last Tuesday (Nov. 23). He replaced outgoing director Michael Hogan, who served on Metropolitan's 38-member board since 2013.

Elected to the VID board in 2008, Miller represents Vista, a community in northeast San Diego County. He has twice served as VID's board president, as well as chair of its fiscal policy, public affairs, water sustainability and Warner Ranch committees.

In 2011, Miller was appointed to the San Diego County Water Authority's Board of Directors, where he serves as chair of the Administrative and Finance and Labor Negotiations Work Group and as a member of the Engineering and Operations and Financial Strategy Work Group. He is a member of the agency's Engineering and Operations committee and formerly served on its Imported Water, Legislation, Conservation and Outreach, and Water Planning committees, as well as its San Vicente Energy Task Force, San Vicente Project Negotiations Work Group, and Small Contractor Outreach and Opportunities Program (SCOOP).

Miller has owned a commercial construction company for the last 45 years and moved from his home in Idaho to Vista in the mid-1980s. He is a member and former president of the Vista Optimist Club and a member of the Rancho Buena Vista Little League Board. Miller has a long coaching career that includes leading Vista's Little League baseball team to second place at the Little League World Series in 2005. He graduated from the College of Southern Idaho with a degree in architectural drafting.

The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California is a state-established cooperative that, along with its 26 cities and retail suppliers, provide water for 19 million people in six counties. The district imports water from the Colorado River and Northern California to supplement local supplies, and helps its members to develop increased water conservation, recycling, storage and other resource-management programs.
