Contra Costa County Supervisor Karen Mitchoff today said she’s disturbed by the Mt. Diablo Health Care District’s decision to hire an executive director at $10,000 per month – as Lisa reported today – even as the Contra Costa Local Agency Formation Commission mulls whether the district should be dissolved.
“I was very concerned by the contract between Mt. Diablo Health Care District and their attorney Ralph Ferguson,” Mitchoff said in a news release. “And this new contract for an Executive Director is outrageous. I am deeply disturbed by the continued depletion of taxpayer resources, especially while a decision by LAFCO is pending as to whether to dissolve the district.”
“The Health Care District was created with the intent to serve the public health needs of our community,” she said. “However, it appears that the board does not share this priority and is more concerned about preserving itself.”
The district includes Concord, Pleasant Hill, Pacheco, Martinez and part of Lafayette.
