CEO Tim McGlew wasted no time sugar-coating what he characterized as “extremely serious issues” the district will have to contend with in the near future. McGlew’s dire predictions were made at the Nov. 2 board of directors meeting. McGlew was alluding to significant cost reduction measures that are included in Governor Jerry Brown’s approved state budget. Specifically, McGlew referred to cuts affecting the state’s skilled nursing facilities and sub-acute units.
