The three-person governing body of the Texas Water Development Board is now fully staffed. Gov. Rick Perry has appointed Kathleen Thea Jackson of Beaumont to the Texas Water Development Board.
Jackson, a registered professional engineer, was most recently public affairs manager for Exxon Mobil Corp.
The board had been down to two members since January, when Weatherford natural gas entrepreneur Mary Ann Williamson resigned. The board chairman is Carlos Rubinstein. Bech Bruun also serves on the board.
The planning process for the Texas Water Development Board now focuses on the 16 regions and the reginal plans. If you live in Hunt, Lamar. Delta, Hopkins, Franklin, Wood, Rains or Van Zandt counties, you're in Region D. The next board meeting for the region is Feb. 19 in Mount Pleasant. If you live in Collin, Fannin, Rockwall or Kaufman counties, you're in Region C.
