EL CENTRO — The Imperial Irrigation District board of directors honored outgoing IID director Stephen Benson at a special meeting on Friday, December 9, in the Condit Auditorium.

Benson did not run for re-election of his Division 4 seat in the November election.

Each director spoke of Benson’s work on the board and how he helped the IID move forward in many situations.

“It has been a privilege to serve the Imperial Valley,” said Benson. “I wanted to make sure we were headed in the right direction. If you need me for anything, I will be in Brawley farming.”

Erik Ortega won the Division 4 seat and Bruce Kuhn was re-elected for the Division 2 seat.

Imperial County Superior Court Judge, the Honorable Ruth Bermudez Montenegro administered the oath of office to the directors.
