Freeman started his Cal Water career in Livermore as an Operation Maintenance Worker, and has also served as a Utility Worker, Certified Pump Operator, Office Manager, Superintendent, and Local Manager.

Already involved in the local community, Freeman previously served on the Board of Directors for the Livermore Chamber of Commerce.
