- End of Bryan Pilkington’s role as chairman?
As the two-hour meeting wound down, vice president Hugh Scanlon
was pressed by audience members to distance himself from Chairman
Pilkington endorsed Scanlon in the November elections, and the
two consistently vote the same way on issues.
When it was asked if he believed meetings ran smoother without
the chairman, Scanlon didn’t answer directly but conceded that
residents in his district have been expressing displeasure with
Scanlon said the district would likely revisit the issue of
Pilkington’s chairman role in December. However, director Joe
Petersen said it could come sooner, since the board can vote to
remove its chairman and name another at any time.
“If the next meeting goes to hell, I will make a motion to name
a new chairman,” he said. “I can’t promise it will be approved, but
I will make the motion.”
The district’s next public meeting will be June 27 at 5 p.m. at
the Liberty Fire Station, located at 24124 N. Bruella Road,

Fed up that items they want to discuss haven't ended up on any
recent meeting agendas, two directors of a local water district
approved a series of actionable items to be discussed at the
board's next meeting. The move was just one of several swipes at
the board's absent chairman during Tuesday's public meeting.
Directors Joe Petersen and Mark Beck of the North San Joaquin
Water Conservation District said they have continually asked board
chairman Bryan Pilkington to put issues regarding the district on
agendas, with no luck. With him out sick, the two seized the
opportunity to address their concerns.
