The Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors is seeking diverse representation from individuals with broad experience with programs that align with the Measure’s voter-approved purpose “to keep Contra Costa’s regional hospital open and staffed; fund community health centers, emergency response; support crucial safety-net services; invest in early childhood services; protect vulnerable populations; and for other essential county services.” The Measure X Community Advisory Board (MXCAB) was established on February 2, 2021 following passage of Measure X – a countywide sales tax measure providing general purpose revenue for County programs.
The main responsibilities of the Measure X Community Advisory Board are:
• Providing input on the scope and methodology of the regular written assessment of community needs and priorities;
• Using the assessment findings to develop general funding priorities to be recommended to the Board of Supervisors on Measure X net revenues available for allocation;
• Receiving annual status reports on the implementation, milestones, impact, and outcomes of Measure X funded programs;
Appointments for seven (7) At-Large and five (5) At-Large Alternate seats will be considered at the Board of Supervisors Finance Committee, with public interviews scheduled March 4, 2024 at 9:30 a.m. To have your application considered at the March Finance Committee meeting, please submit an application online by February 23, 2024 at 5:00 p.m. https://contra-costa.granicus.com/boards/forms/321/apply/
