GHD board vacancy, applicants solicited.
The Grossmont Healthcare District (GHD), a public agency that supports health-related community programs and services in San Diego's East County region, is soliciting applicants to fill a vacancy on its board of directors.
The vacancy was created with the resignation of Elizabeth Evans, who recently relocated to Hawaii with her family. Evans was elected to a four-year term on the board in November 2004. In 2006, she served on the board as treasurer.
A nurse practitioner for the past year and a registered nurse for 13 years, Evans previously worked as an occupational health nurse practitioner at Alvarado Hospital. In 2005, she received a master's degree from San Diego State University's School of Nursing.
In her resignation letter, Evans said, "It has been a delight to have been associated with such a fine, outstanding group of public-spirited healthcare professionals."
Interested persons for the vacant GHD board seat must be a U.S. citizen, a registered voter and reside within the boundaries of the District.
Applicants must be prepared to serve as a director until the general election in November 2008, which is the next time the seat appears on the ballot. Applicants also must file a Fair Political Practices Act Disclosure Statement with their application, which must be received no later than 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 19, at the GHD offices, 9001 Wakarusa St., La Mesa. The application must state the applicant's qualifications and the reasons the applicant desires to be appointed to the board.
The GHD board has announced it will consider the applications and appointment of a board member to fill the vacancy at a special board meeting starting at 7:30 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 22.
Eligible applicants desiring additional information can contact Barry Jantz, District CEO, at either firstname.lastname@example.org, or (619) 825-5050.
The Grossmont Healthcare District, formed in 1952 to build and operate Grossmont Hospital, serves as landlord of the hospital on behalf of local taxpayers, including ownership of the property and buildings. GHD board meetings are normally held on the third Friday of each month at the District Conference Center at 9001 Wakarusa St, La Mesa. The District's five-member board of directors, each elected to four-year terms, represent nearly 500,000 East County residents who live within the District's 750 square miles in San Diego's East County.
