Oceano board appoints former journalist to vacant seat
June 18, 2012
White was appointed to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Richard Searcy who stepped down following an alleged drunk driving incident.
White graduated from Arroyo Grande High School, worked as a journalist for more than 40 years, and served as the founding chairperson for the Halycon Community Association.
“I have extensive experience covering elected boards, governmental agencies, and organizations and can offer the district advice and guidance to help keep district activities positive,” White says in her letter of intent. “I also understand the Brown Act and the need for confidentiality.”
Board members interviewed three of the four candidates asking questions about their intentions to run for election in November if not selected and community issues.
White was sworn in on Friday evening and will take her seat June 27.
