Air Pollution Control District Names New Director
The county’s Air Pollution Control District board is expected to approve Aeron Arlin-Genet as its new director during Thursday’s meeting. Arlin-Genet worked for San Luis Obispo’s APCD for 15 years and for the Western States Petroleum Association for six, according to her LinkedIn page. She also heads the Central Coast Clean Cities Coalition and the area’s chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council. Her predecessor, David Van Mullem, was pushed out earlier this year. People in the oil industry considered Van Mullem supportive of new projects. Arlin-Genet will earn about $150,000 annually.
