The Central Valley Flood Protection Board is happy to announce that, on February 24, 2022, Mike Villines was reappointed to the Board by Governor Newsom. Mr. Villines was first appointed to the Board in 2011 by Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. He was reappointed in 2014 and 2018. He was elected to the California State Assembly in 2004 to represent the 29th Assembly District, which includes the counties of Fresno and Madera. Known as the heartland of California, this region is an agriculturally rich and ethnically diverse part of California. After serving six years in the California State Assembly, which is the maximum service allowed under California’s Constitution, Mr. Villines went back to his private sector roots and opened the Villines Group, a Corporate and Government Relations consulting firm with offices in Sacramento and Fresno California. Mr. Villines also serves as Vice President of Corporate and Government Affairs for the State Legislative Leaders Foundation, a nonprofit, nonpartisan, independent national organization committed to providing specialized educational and enrichment programs for the leaders of our state legislatures. Congratulations, Mike!
