Tribute to Claude "Bud" Lewis
Claude “Bud” Lewis dedicated nearly four decades to serving the residents of the City of Carlsbad and San Diego County. Affectionately known as “Bud” or “Buddy” to his constituents, Lewis served 16 years on the Carlsbad City Council and a record 24 years as mayor of the City of Carlsbad.
In this capacity, Mayor Lewis served more than 15 years on the San Diego County Water Authority Board of Directors. Committed to increasing water independence for San Diego County, he was a tireless advocate for water supply reliability projects, including the Carlsbad Desalination Project, and his ardent support proved instrumental in making the Carlsbad project a reality.
The Claude “Bud” Lewis Desalination Plant stands as a testament to his leadership and vision for a more sustainable and independent water reliability future in San Diego County.
