Doran has served the Discovery Bay community in various capacities for 20 years, and played a major role in the formation of the Town’s Community Services District. “Bob’s experience as a CSD member, his knowledge as a Discovery Bay historian, and his leadership skills make him a great person to represent Discovery Bay on this important land-use commission,” said Piepho. “Mr. Doran recognizes that the county needs to be held accountable on important growth issues, and he will do it.”
Piepho is charged with making three appointments to the East County Regional Planning Commission: the Knightsen seat currently held by Anthony Pigatti, the Discovery Bay seat now filled by Bob Doran, and the Byron seat, which is currently vacant. Applications for the Byron seat are being accepted. Applications may be obtained by visiting the county’s Web site, www.contra.napanet.net/maddybook/, or calling the County Clerk of the Board of Supervisors at 925-335-1900. Applications should be returned to the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors, 651 Pine Street, Martinez, CA 94553 by 5 p.m. on April 30, 2009.
