AVAQMD Governing Board Member
Ron Hawkins, Los Angeles County 5th District
Ron is a Senior Manager in the Supply Chain Management organization with the Boeing Company in Palmdale, California. Ron’s interest in public service began shortly after moving to Antelope Acres in 2001 by working cooperatively with neighboring farmers and the AVAQMD to address fugitive dust concerns. That involvement resulted in working with Antelope Acres Town Council, the city of Lancaster, and the Los Angeles County Supervisor’s field office. Ron served on the Antelope Acres Town Council for several years until 2011.
Ron’s interest is the general welfare and quality of life of the residents of our Antelope Valley. That interest is expressed through involvement with his church the Desert Vineyard and various involvements with local organizations. Ron also served on the Lancaster General Plan Citizen’s Advisory Committee as one of two representatives of the unincorporated areas within Lancaster’s sphere of influence.
Ron holds a Master degree in Business Administration from the University of LaVerne, with a focus on leadership. Ron also holds a Certified Professional Property Management certificate. A lifelong Antelope Valley resident, Ron has three children who all live locally and resides with his wife Shelley in Antelope Acres.
