Rest in peace, Director Scolari
I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the HCSD since 1995; having been elected to six 4-year terms.  During this time, my focus and dedication have been on putting customer needs first - always striving to maintain the lowest possible rates yet still provide excellent service.

Re-Elected November 2018
Term Expires December 2022

Born and raised within District boundaries, I graduated from Eureka High School in 1984 and HSU in 1991 with a degree in Political Science and a minor in economics.  In 1989 established Bongio Construction and have developed approximately 50 properties within the District under District Codes, Regulations, Permitting, etc.  In 2002, following my father Aldo's footsteps, I began serving on the HCSD Board of Directors always striving to ensure compliance and set policies to keep water and sewer rates as low as possible while maintaining excellent service to the District's customers.  I also currently serve on the Humboldt County Planning Commission and have served as a Board Member with the North Coast Homebuilders and St. Bernard's Catholic School.

Years of practical experience and institutional knowledge of the District are strengths I possess that will ensure continued leadership for the customers of the District.
On a personal level, I have been married to my wife, Mary, since 1991, and we have two wonderful sons, Logan and Luke.  I have been active in youth sports for many years coaching soccer, baseball, and football.  In my free time, I also enjoy fishing, hunting, and snow skiing.
