Bradford Barker is the newest member to serve on the Board of Directors for the District since his official appointment in February 2014. Brad is the owner and operator of Barker Property Management. He received his Bachelor of Science degree from California Polytechnic State University before settling in Delano. He has been a long-time resident of this community since his move in 1973 and has raised his family in the Delano community as well.

Brad has contributed a great deal of his time to several organizations such as Cinco De Mayo Fiesta Inc., Alliance for Education, and Titan Academic Culture. His desire to become a Board Member occurred when a family member was placed at Delano District Skilled Nursing Facility and received excellent care. Brad’s vision for the District is to maintain the level of care provided by the District as well as to provide seniors with additional options for long-term care.
