CEO of Santa Clara Valley Water District Ousted

Following a Santa Clara County District Attorney investigation, and numerous press reports about mismanagement, Beau Goldie has been forced out as the CEO of the Santa Clara Valley Water District. Goldie was a decades-long Water District employee who rose through the ranks, but his tenure as CEO was marked with rancor and hostility toward labor.  Goldie resigned Jan. 14.  The Board will rotate the interim post among chiefs while it searches for a new CEO. Read more details about the action here and here. District employees -- including members of Local 21's ES and PMA chapters – applaud Goldie’s departure and look forward to a new CEO who will act transparently and value the district’s employees.
