WETA recently bid a fond farewell to former Vallejo Mayor Anthony Intintoli, who is stepping away after having served on the Board of Directors for WETA and its predecessor agency for more than 20 years.
Mayor Intintoli, for whom the City of Vallejo named a ferry in the early 2000s, declined to seek reappointment to the WETA Board of Directors when his term expired in 2022. Outgoing Vallejo City Councilmember Pippin Dew has been appointed to the Board by Governor Gavin Newsom.
Mayor Intintoli was first appointed to the Board of Directors for the Water Transit Authority in 2000, and then appointed as a director for the successor agency the Water Emergency Transportation Authority in 2008. He was the last WTA representative still on the Board and the only director to serve on the WETA Board for the entirety of its existence.
At WETA’s December 8 Board meeting in Vallejo, Mayor Intintoli received a parade of commendations, including resolutions from Congressmembers Mike Thompson and John Garamendi, State Senator Bill Dodd, and Assemblymember Lori Wilson.
