Moreno sworn in as CCSD Director, promises to govern 'with an equity lens'

December 6, 2018 |

At a brief ceremony last night, two Directors - one incumbent and one newly elected - were sworn into office to the Cosumnes Community Services District Board of Directors.

The two taking their oath were Rod Brewer, who is starting his third four-year term on the five-member board, and Jaclyn Moreno. Brewer and Moreno were elected to the two at-large seats that were on November's ballot in a four-candidate field.

Held at the CCSD's temporary board room at Elk Grove Regional Park's Pavilion facility, the ceremony drew family members, friends, and member of the various Democratic Party. Both Directors, along with Orlando Fuentes, are active members of the Elk Grove-Sacramento Democratic Party.

After taking her oath, Moreno and Brewer took the opportunity to address the at-capacity audience that gathered for the ceremony.

In her remarks,  Moreno recounted that she was motivated to seek elected office following the 2016 election of President Donald Trump. After that event, Moreno said she decided to start the local Resistance group with the intent of keeping local officials accountable. 

Noting after one meeting with an unnamed male elected official, Moreno said she felt the issues "that the issues affecting me weren't the issues that were important to him."

This, Moreno said, motivated her to seek public office. Further into her presentation she said equity, which was a theme in her one-year plus campaign, would also be a guiding principle in her governance.

"So tonight I would like to make this commitment," she said. "I promise to always look at issues with an equity lens."

Following Moreno, Brewer, who was first elected to his position in 2010 after an unsuccessful run in 2008, reflected on the experience of being a director, and people who have assisted him over the last several years.

Below are Moreno and Brewer's comments in their entirety.
