Cameron Davis

Cameron Davis is a commissioner at the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District, having been first elected in what was one of the most unusual races in Illinois history, where he ran as a write-in candidate. He is the District Board of Commissioners’ only public interest Clean Water Act attorney and is running for re-election in 2020.

He served as President Obama’s “Great Lakes Czar” from 2009 to 2017, coordinating the work of 11 federal departments and serving as the Administration’s liaison to Capitol Hill in investing more than $2 billion under the bi-partisan Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.

“Cam” has dedicated his entire career to the public’s interest in water, having been a litigating attorney for the National Wildlife Federation, professor at the University of Michigan Law School, and President & CEO of the Chicago-based Alliance for the Great Lakes.
