Board Members Election and Filling Vacancies

Del Puerto Health Care District is governed by a 5-member board of directors who are publicly elected to serve four-year terms. Board members must be residents within the boundaries of the District. 

When a Directors leaves their seat before the term is concluded our Board of Directors’ Bylaws and CA State Law provide how vacancies are to be filled. Following is the recommended timeline:

Immediately             Submit Public Notice for publication in Patterson Irrigator.

3rd Week                  Close acceptance period (or extend if no letters of interest received)

4th Week                  Ad-hoc Committee reviews letters of interest and selects two proposed candidates to be invited to the next Board meeting

5th Week                 Proposed candidates presented and interviewed by full Board, appoint best candidate, administer Oath of Office, new Director assumes seat immediately



The District will have the following seats open in the November election:

·         Two seats for remainder of the Director term ending December 2022 (see prior paragraph),

·         Two terms end December 2020, therefore

·         Four seats will be on the November 3, 2020 ballot.
