Healthcare Districts getting politically active
Original post made by Jack Hickey on Jul 16, 2013
On June 26th, the Sequoia Healthcare District hosted a "media training day" for ACHD.
ACHD is stepping up their political activity. Web Link. This event may be the reason for the meeting rescheduling request. Some Directors are said to be "out of town" on the August 7th Regular meeting date. Despite my request for information, no particulars have been made available as to which Directors will be out of town, and why. Web Link
The annual meeting of ACHD was held in La Jolla, CA in May.
The Cash Disbursements Journal for the Sequoia Healthcare District shows ACHD meeting expenses as follows: Director Art Faro $1,344.56 Director Katie Kane $1098.80 and Board President Shefren $1,251.06. CEO Lee Michelson also attended the ACHD meeting. (cost TBD)
Earlier this year, our CEO, along with President Shefren, attended ACHD Legislative Days in Sacramento at a cost to taxpayers of $1,274.70.

Sequoia Healthcare District CEO, Lee Michelson, maintains communication with the California Special District Association(CSDA). While the Sequoia Healthcare District is no longer a dues paying member, it is notable that the CSDA is actively pursuing the reduction in vote requirement for special taxes (including parcel taxes) to 55%. Web Link If these obsolete Healthcare Districts are allowed to continue, you can expect to see a barrage of parcel tax measures.

ACHD is also supporting the 55% reduced vote requirement. See: SCA11
