Historic election for 2 new SVMH districts
The Californian - Salinas

For the first time in 60 years, and with the advice of a consultant and the United States Department of Justice, two members on the Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital District’s Board of Directors will be elected in November by district instead of at large.

After about a year of study and so that the large Salinas Hispanic population “are getting represented the way they should be,” the consultant “recommended the board go to elections by zone instead of at large,” said SVMH president and interim Chief Executive Officer Lowell Johnson.
