Transition: DWA is transitioning from at-large elections to election-by division, similar to the way the city elects councilmembers by district.

  • That means only candidates living in Divisions 1, 2, and 3 can run for office this year.

    • Division 1 encompasses neighborhoods in Palm Springs north of Vista Chino and stretches into North Palm Springs and areas surrounding Desert Hot Springs.  

    • Division 2 & 3 include portions of Desert Hot Springs.

Why it matters: Any prospective candidates for the Board are invited to two candidate workshops being held by DWA over the next week. Candidates will learn more about the Board, running for office, and public service in general.

  • The nomination period runs until Aug. 12.

Details, details: The first workshop will be held on July 25 at 12 p.m. at the Desert Hot Springs Library. The second will be held on July 26 at DWA’s office in Palm Springs at 8 a.m.
