San Leandro Mayor Tony Santos has an opening for the Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) of the Alameda County Transportation Improvement Authority (ACTIA). As a member of the ACTIA Governing Board, Santos can appoint three members to the CAC. Current appointees are Norbert Casto, appointed in December 2007, and Elizabeth Cooke, re-appointed in September 2007. The vacant position was occupied by Victoria Wang, who was appointed in May 2007. According to minutes from the CAC meetings, Wang has missed three out of four meetings through January 2008. Wang also provided translations for the San Leandro delegation visit to Yangchun, China, in October 2007.
According to the ACTIA web site, "Local residents serve on ACTA/ACTIA's 33 member Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) as representatives of the numerous communities throughout Alameda County. These members are appointed by the ACTIA Board to keep informed of the progress of Measure B programs and projects, discuss local community transportation concerns, share information relevant to the overall success of ACTIA's mission, and provide feedback to their respective communities."
The committee is scheduled to meet on the third Thursday of each month from 5:30pm to 7:30pm, but usually meets about six times a year. Applicants must be Alameda County residents and each member serves a term of two years. For an application, contact the Mayor's office at (510) 577-3355. The appointment is at the sole discretion of Santos and does not require approval of the San Leandro City Council.Posted by Mike Katz-Lacabe at June 6, 2008 4:25 PM | TrackBack
