Board Members

Board Members

There is a publicly elected Board of Directors consisting of five members serving four-year terms. The Board of Directors serve without compensation. While the directors could receive pay for the work they do, over the years they have rejected that idea. In order to broaden the base of local government, the Board has appointed a Fire Commission and a Parks and Recreation Commission. Members of the Commissions are appointed for two-year terms by the CSD Board.

William Shea, President

I was born and raised in the Sunset District of San Francisco.  As a youth, my family would drive north to Marin to escape the hustle and bustle of the “city” life. When I came into my own, I decided to buy property in Marin for these same reasons. In 1996, my wife, Gabriela and I bought a home in Marinwood. We chose this neighborhood because of its beautiful open spaces and the excellent public schools. Our children are now 15 and 18 years old and have both graduated from the Dixie School District. As their parents, we have enjoyed contributing many hours volunteering to ensure the quality of their education and we have had the pleasure of working alongside many other dedicated parents. We have also had the opportunity to meet so many of the wonderful people in our neighborhood through our children’s sports and a number of community events sponsored by our fire fighters, the CSD and Kelly’s Wishes Foundation. I began my service to the CSD as a volunteer for a special finance committee; I am now honored to continue my service as an elected director for my beloved community.

I have been a resident of Marinwood since 2005. I served on the Park and Rec Commission starting in 2006 and was previously on the CSD board from 2009-2013. I am a business owner, mother of 2 young children, wife and homeowner.

My passion is in looking for creative ways of improving the long-term fiscal health of the district without cutting services. I am well versed on the current issues facing our community and have an excellent working relationship with all parties involved. Armed with an MBA and sixteen years of business experience, I bring a logical and methodical approach to the current budgetary challenges in these uncertain economic times.

I have a distinct stake in maintaining, preserving and improving our community. I was born and raised in the North Bay. After graduating from college and serving in the Peace Corps, I followed my heart back home to California for graduate school and to use my passions and talents for the betterment of this amazing place we are fortunate enough to call home!

Jeff Naylor

Before my family made Marinwood our home in 1985 I had a history of participation in athletics and student government both in high school and college.  Like many others who have served the community I began volunteering for my children’s sports activities and then was drawn to community service as a fire commissioner.  I stood for election to the District Board in 2015 with the idea of leveraging the lessons of teamwork gained from sports and the knowledge from serving the District since 1996 to apply to the challenges our community faces.
