Marsilio Candidate Statement

Soquel Creek Water District Board
November 2020

Maria Marsilio, Human Resources Director

My goal, if I am elected to the Board, is to bring demonstrated leadership in building collaborative and productive relationships in order to find viable, research based, scientifically data driven, environmentally sound, cost effective solutions that have been tried and true to the District. I will work hard to reduce waste and to listen to the needs of community members, business leaders, and farmers. There are a number of solutions that will meet our water requirements such as groundwater management, water transfers, aquifer recharge, rainwater harvesting systems, environmental protection, equitable water rates, and economic prosperity. The water problems we face are complex and require a multi-faceted solution. I raised my 2 children in Aptos and am an active volunteer in the community. My Master’s Degree in Industrial Psychology from San Jose State University and over 20 years of senior management experience as well as my analytical abilities, conflict resolution skills, and consensus building approach has proven invaluable to finding solutions to complex issues.
