Leighton Hills, Board President
Leighton Hills, Board President(415) 383-7102 leighton.hills@muirbeachcsd(dot)com
Leighton was raised in the Bay Area, received an MBA from Boston University and a BA in Economics from Yale University. He has developed real estate, served as District Manager of the CSD for 12 years during which time he became certified in municipal drinking water treatment, and was elected to the CSD board for 4 years prior to that. He currently manages a number of commercial real estate properties, and manages two wireless ISPs, including Muir Beach LAN. His son is an Electrical Engineering professor at Harvard, and his daughter is a pediatrician, with a practice in Marin County. He has been a resident of Muir Beach for 31 years. He was last elected to the board in 2022. Term expires in 2026.
Nikola Tede, Board Director(415) 381-1203 ntbolinas@gmail(dot)com
Nikola has lived in Muir Beach with her husband Joseph Ferraro since 2005. Although born in San Francisco, the family spent most weekends in Bolinas and with her move to Muir Beach, it is fair to say that she is a life-long West Marinite.
She has a challenging and rewarding career as a pediatric cardiologist for Stanford Children’s Health which takes her to clinics in SF, Novato and Santa Rosa. She enjoys gardening, reading and playing the flute and with what free time is left she participates in Muir Beach volunteer groups such as the MBVFA Memorial BBQ baking team, Neighborhood Disaster liaison and Garden Club. Joining the CSD had been on her radar for several years and Paul Jeschke’s departure from our community and the board provided the opportunity to follow through and become more involved in supporting the wonderful people of Muir Beach.
She was last appointed to the CSD Board in 2023. Term expires in 2024.
