Beach Cities Health District candidates

10/22/20, Beach Reporter

The recent BCHD candidate debate gave residents a clear view of the similarities and differences between the candidates. All candidates agree that the district is an asset to the community. All candidates support its wide ranging volunteer program, and the programs and services donated to school districts.

The new candidates Karen Komatinsky and Martha Koo differentiate themselves from the others by offering a fresh perspective on BCHD’s future potential. They believe the district has not done an adequate job in reaching out to the communities it serves and would like to see robust efforts towards community engagement. In addition, both expressed commitment to ensuring the prudent use of our tax dollars, greater scrutiny on how money is spent, detailed evaluation of programs and services to show cost effectiveness and clear health impact to the community.

In terms of the Healthy Living Campus, they echo residents’ concern about whether a brick-and-mortar campus is appropriate for the community at this time. This fresh perspective is how I would like to see BCHD proceed into the future. In light of this, I give my full support to Karen Komatinsky and Martha Koo.
