Bill Kelly is on the school board agenda to become a new CBOC member as a nominee of the Hercules City Council; Tim Warner is on the same agenda to be appointed to a second term.
The West Contra Costa Unified School District Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee has 19 seats. Currently, there are 16 appointed members with 1 member finishing his term and needing to be renewed. There are three empty seats, all “city” seats: Hercules, San Pablo, and Richmond. (Check the roster for the full run-down on membership.)
It’s the responsibility of the school district to fill the positions. Sadly, they don’t tell the CBOC leadership anything beforehand about appointment activity, because that would be…too normal. As committee secretary, I just check the agendas as they come out to the public. If there is a new person on the agenda, I do some internet tracking if necessary to get their contact info.
In the next WCCUSD School Board meeting agenda, I can see two CBOC appointments. Tim Warner is up for renewal. He has been a good contributor to our committee, so I’m glad that he’s continuing. Bill Kelly is also on the agenda as a new appointee having been nominated by the City of Hercules. He’s on the city council. Hopefully, the time demands of his council seat won’t interfere too much with attendance at CBOC meetings.
Note: Other groups and individuals nominate people for CBOC, but appointment to the CBOC is approved by the school board.
