Chair Director David Farrell

David Farrell moved to Penn Valley in 1999. He retired last year after a 40-year career in higher education administration and teaching, including positions at CSU Northridge, Sonoma State University, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and most recently, serving as Dean of Student Development at Yuba College. He has a BA and MA in psychology, and a Doctorate in higher education administration/organizational development. He is currently an adjunct psychology professor at Brandman University. He brings to the Board experience in budgeting, project planning, staffing, supervision, and contract negotiation.

David and his wife, Paula, will be celebrating their 46th wedding anniversary this fall. He has three children and four grandchildren.

David was seeking an opportunity to contribute to the Penn Valley community when he became aware of the opening on the Board. After an interview process a subcommittee recommended that he be appointed, and the full Board did so at their August meeting. David’s focus will be on maintaining the best possible work environment to retain staff.

Vice Chair Director Kurt Grundel

Kurt was a volunteer firefighter for 20 years in the communities he lived in and in some others for training and education purposes. This included time served on the Penn Valley Fire Protection District where he completed the rank of EMT and Engineer.

After becoming a permanent resident, he received an appointment to the Board of PVFPD by the County Supervisors. Within the first two years of serving the Board, the District became a Special District with open elections. Continuing with the PVFPD for three elections, Kurt has been the Chairman for the last three years. Kurt has represented the District on the Nevada County Fire Agency for 12 years and recently was elected to LAFCO by the Special Districts represented on LAFCO.

Achievements of the District during Kurt Grundel's seat on the PVFPD include becoming a Special District, achieving local control and management contracting and the opening and staffing of the station located on Spenceville Road. Kurt participated with the Fireman's Association whenever possible. The Fire District has many community based fund raisers and Kurt encourages the community to respond by attending the breakfasts and patronize the Thrift Store. These functions help purchase equipment and train our firefighters.
