First 5 Lake County seeks commissioner

LAKE COUNTY – First 5 Lake County is seeking a candidate to fill an “at-large” vacancy on its Commission for a two-year term.

The commission supports programs serving expectant mothers and children ages birth to 5.

The four main goals of the commission are increased access to quality, developmentally appropriate childcare which meets the economic, cultural and developmental needs of all children and families of Lake County; increased access to parent education and support services to meet the diverse needs of Lake County parents; improved access to health and therapeutic services for the children and families of Lake County; and improved parent access to services and programs which will increase their opportunity to sustain and support the full and healthy growth and development of their children.

An overarching goal of the commission is school readiness.

Funding for these efforts totals more than $500,000 each year and comes via revenues from Proposition 10, which is the tobacco tax that was passed by the voters in 1998.

The Lake County Commission is recruiting to fill one vacancy. The commission is comprised of nine members, four of which are mandated and the remaining five are generally categorized to represent a cross-section of countywide individuals who have demonstrated experience and an interest in the four main goals areas as defined above.

Interested applicants must be prepared to volunteer their time preparing for and attending monthly meetings, participating in occasional regional and state meetings and conferences, and actively representing the commission of Lake County.

All interested candidates are invited to request an application by contacting the commission at 263-6169, or you can stop by the commission office, located in the Lake County Career Center, 55 First Street, Suite 222 (second floor), in Lakeport.
