November 12, 2010 (La Mesa)--Grossmont Healthcare District Board of Directors will hold a special meeting on Monday, November 15 at 7:30 a.m. in the District conference center, 9001 Wakarusa in La Mesa. Following public comments of up to five minutes per person, the board will adjourn to closed session to confer with legal counsel on “significant exposure to litigation.”
Barry Jantz, CEO of Grossmont Healthcare District, confirms that the "exposure" pertains to former Board member Jim Stieringer’s request to rescind his resignation after he was turned down for a staff position with the District.
Stieringer's application for the open position that he knew of prior to his resignation raised conflict of interest questions, as ECM previously reported: http://www.eastcountymagazine.org/node/4757.
The Board will report to the public after the closed session.
