Voting is for the 15 seats on the District Committee. The committee represents the needs and interests of San Juan District’s seniors and disabled persons. This committee acts in an oversight capacity to Mullis Center management and in an advisory capacity to County Senior Services management. They provide fiscal and fiduciary oversight of the District and its senior center.
Committee members attend monthly meetings plus any special meetings. Due to Covid-19 the meetings have been conducted using Zoom. Qualified candidates need to have basic technical skills and devices to facilitate meeting online.
We are very lucky and blessed to live in a community where we have so many excellent candidates to choose from. However, in voting please be cautious. There is misinformation going around. Please refer to the Mullis Center website or the Senior Signal newsletter for reliable information.
