Commissioner honored


The Michigan Water Environmental Association has named Oakland County Water Resources Commissioner Jim Nash (left) its Public Utility Management Professional of the Year at their annual awards ceremony last month. The award was established in 2002 and is awarded to a worthy individual who has demonstrated outstanding dedication to an employer and to the MWEA, has excelled public utilities management, and has publicly promoted the water environment profession. “I’m humbled and gratified to receive this award and the recognition from the Michigan WEA, a group of professionals who are highly regarded. They are great folks who do great work for the public good,” said Nash who was first elected Oakland County Water Resources Commissioner in 2012. Last year, voters returned him for a second term.
