April 4, 2011 - PRLog -- Former California State Assembly member Mary Salas has joined the board of directors at Groundwork San Diego-Chollas Creek, an independent, not-for-profit, environmental business headquartered in southeast San Diego.

“As a member of the Joint Agency Water Task Force and a board member of the Sweetwater Water District, Mary is extremely knowledgeable about local environmental initiatives,” said Leslie Reynolds, Executive Director for Groundwork San Diego-Chollas Creek. “She is a perfect fit for this board, and we are extremely lucky to work with her.”

While in the California Legislature, Salas served on the Water, Parks and Wildlife Committee. Salas was also selected by the Speaker of the Assembly to participate on the Working Water Group. With this group, Salas helped craft legislation for a bond measure that included a comprehensive strategy for ensuring water reliability for California, and restoration of the San Joaquin Sacramento Delta.

Locally, Salas has worked tirelessly to find a solution to San Diego’s water supply issue. “A clean reliable water supply is only assured if we protect our watersheds and clean up our groundwater,” said Salas.

As a director at Groundwork, Salas hopes to utilize her knowledge, experience and connections to advise Groundwork of funding opportunities to carry out area-restoration projects.

Founded in 2007, Groundwork San Diego-Chollas Creek works in partnership with the City of San Diego and the Chollas Creek communities of Southeastern San Diego to improve the environment, economy and quality of life there. With the assistance of students, families, businesses, and partner organizations, Groundwork restores creek and open space, tracks and saves species, and provides educational outreach around conservation, clean water, and climate challenge issues. Groundwork San Diego-Chollas Creek is part of the Groundwork USA national network of trusts, in partnership with EPA and National park Service.
