Former State Senator Janet Nguyen told some of her closest friends that she is done sitting around being a housewife. To keep her name active and also to have some supplemental income, she is putting her name for the vacant board seat of the Municipal Water District of Orange County. The wholesale water supplier sells to 28 city water departments and water districts which supply water to more than two-thirds of Orange County population.
The position paid up to $30,000 a year plus another $20,000 of benefits. There are at least 5 other candidates the board will also consider for the appointment. Whoever the board chosen will have to run for election in 2020
After the interview, she thinks she has a good chance of being chosen by the board. After all, she is more than qualified in comparison to her illustrious political career.
Epilogue: The MWDOC Board voted 4-0 in favor of former Fountain Valley Planning Commissioner Robert McVicker to the post. Janet Nguyen hinted that she will run for the seat in 2020. With more than $350,000 left over from her last campaign, Nguyen has a great chance of winning.
