Anson Moran was appointed to the SFPUC board of commissioners by Mayor Gavin Newsom. She is currently the Vice President of SFPUC. According to his official biography, he "brings more than three decades of experience with the City and County of San Francisco and water, wastewater and power issues, including 17 years of leadership positions within the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC). From 1993 to 2000, Commissioner Moran served as General Manager of the SFPUC, overseeing the reorganization of the agency that removed Muni and added the Clean Water Program (Wastewater) to the agency’s operations. From 1988-1993, he held the post of General Manager of Hetch Hetchy Water and Power and previously served as Assistant General Manager for Finance. In his years at the SFPUC and as a founding member of California Urban Water Agencies, Commissioner Moran was instrumental in fostering greater cooperation among Bay Area water agencies and elevating the SFPUC to a position of national utility leadership. Commissioner Moran has also served as Senior Policy Advisor to U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein with a focus on San Francisco Bay-Delta issues. He currently runs his own consulting practice providing water resource development services. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and a Masters in Urban Studies from Occidental College. [1]
