Watts was first appointed to the board by the Denton City Council in 2009 and has been re-appointed every two years since then, including last spring as his final term on the council was ending.
Watts has served as both vice president and treasurer of the agency, and currently serves as chair of its personnel committee.
A Denton real estate attorney, Watts graduated from the University of North Texas and received his doctor of jurisprudence from the Texas Wesleyan University School of Law.
