Attendees of the April 19 Netarts-Oceanside Sanitary District Board of Directors meeting were surprised to hear that its Chair Shannon Brosseau had submitted her letter of resignation effective May 1, citing that she will be moving out of the district on May 5. This comes at an awkward time, because ballots for the election for Position 4 (Brosseau’s place) and Position 5 (Bruce Lovelin’s place) are being readied for the mail. The deadline for replacing Brosseau’s name on the ballot has passed, but a write-in candidate for that position is possible. Ballots will be mailed on April 27.
This volunteer board is faced with the tremendous job of ensuring that the recently approved bond measure providing some $15,000,000 in tax money will result in the timely and successful construction of a new sanitary treatment plant. The board is also in mid-negotiations with Green Crow L.L.C for possible acquisition of its property for the new site. And the new budget planning cycle was initiated earlier this week. A tough time to loose a key member.
I want to step forward and be a candidate for Position 4. I am well-qualified and have the experience needed to help the board through this time.
Please write in Deborah Macartney for NOSD Board, Position 4. If you’re interested and would like to know more about me and why I’m asking for your help to take on this challenge, read on.
