One New Guy, One “Repeat Offender” for Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee


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.
