Sacramento Municipal Utility District Director Rob Kerth has been elected president of the utility’s board of directors.
His term will run from January through December 2015.
Kerth first served as a Ward 5 SMUD director from 2009 through 2012 before leaving to run for a seat on the Sacramento City Council. He was appointed to the board last February to fill the vacancy left when then-Ward 5 Director Michael Picker resigned. He fulfilled the remainder of Picker’s term and was elected to the post earlier this month.
Ward 5 includes midtown, downtown and North Sacramento, along with Natomas, Rio Linda and Elverta.
Kerth is a third-generation Sacramentan and former two-term Sacramento city councilman. He has served on numerous regional organizations.
