The West County Wastewater (WCW) Board of Directors have announced the sudden passing of Director Sherry Stanley, who was first elected to the board in 2016.
After three years on the board, Stanley went on to serve as its vice president in 2019, according to WCW. Two years ago when WCW transitioned to a district-based election system, she was elected to District 2 encompassing North Richmond and parts of San Pablo.
During her time with the board, WCW said Stanley “contributed to many industry-related organizations,” among them the North Richmond Municipal Advisory Committee, the California Association of Sanitation Agency and the California Special Districts Association. The district said that she was also supportive of the WCW levee project and the PIPES Program, which encourages pipe replacement throughout the community.
“She was part of the leadership who brought transformation and modernization to WCW,” added the district about Stanley, who graduated from CSU Hayward with a B.A. Degree and Golden Gate University with a Juris Doctorate Degree.
“WCW Board of Directors, on behalf of West County Wastewater, extend their sympathy to the family, friends and constituents of WCW board member Sherry Stanley,” stated the district.
