Welcome Board Member
Dina Nguyen

Dina Nguyen was voted to the Orange County Water District by the citizens of Garden Grove to represent them in Division 1, left vacant after 35 years by Kathryn Barr, who retired recently. Director Nguyen was formerly councilmember for the City of Garden Grove and most recently Mayor Pro Tempore.

"We welcome Director Nguyen to this important position that will help guide the District in its mission to provide quality, reliable water to 2.4 million people in Orange County," says OCWD General Manager Mike Markus.

She was elected to the Garden Grove City Council in November 2006, then re-elected in 2010. She began her political career as a commissioner on the Garden Grove Neighborhood Improvement and Conservation Commission where she recommended programs to the city council to improve and preserve neighborhoods through zoning enforcement, housing rehabilitation, street improvement, and other housing-related programs.

Director Nguyen served Orange County for 18 years as an employee of the Superior Court. During that time, she attended law school. Presently, she is the principal owner of the Business & Law Center of Dina L. Nguyen in Garden Grove.

Both her professional law practice and her activities in the community focus on the areas of education, family and business.

Over the years, she has lent her support to organizations that include the Rotary Club of Garden Grove, the Boy Scouts of America, the Sustainable Community Foundation of Orange, the Susan G. Komen Foundation, the American Red Cross, the Team of Advocates for Special Kids, the NBH Youth and Cultural Development Center, and the Orange County Community Services Programs.

Director Nguyen came to the United States in 1975, has lived in Orange County since 1977 and now resides in Garden Grove with her family.
