Tri-City board votes to censure director
North County Times

Tri-City Medical Center directors censured one of their own Thursday on a litany of accusations ranging from unethical conduct to disruptive behavior at board meetings. On a 4-2 vote, with Director Ron Mitchell absent, the board censured Director Kathleen Sterling, stripping the board stipend she receives each month, removing legal indemnification for “continual intentional acts or omissions” that could subject the public hospital to “potential criminal and civil liability” and ordering her to “cease and desist in further illegal, inappropriate, disruptive and hostile behaviors towards employees.”
