Sherry has served on our RGWD Board since July 1991. She and her husband, Allen, moved into the district in 1974 where they raised their two children. Sherry worked as a dental hygienist and later sold residential real estate and farm properties. While researching water rights, land use and environmental issues, Sherry decided to run for the RGWD Board. She and Allen also serve as Directors for the Lake Grove Fire District and volunteer with the Lake Oswego Fire Department’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). Her goal’s for the RGWD are: safer drinking water with higher state and federal quality standards, more customer/public participation at Board meetings, more transparency of known problems, hardening our system to better prepare for earthquakes and more effective fire suppression while developing solutions in a sound financial plan.
