Senovia Gutierrez will, if all goes according to plan, officially be declared a board member at the Tulare Local Healthcare District’s September 27 meeting.
It’s everything after that point that’s unclear.
That’s because, as with the district’s prior meeting, two competing agendas have been released.
One was released by Healthcare Conglomerate Associates (HCCA) and posted on the hospital’s website, which the company controls, at 3:33pm on 24 September.. Another was sent by Kevin Northcraft, voted board president by Mike Jamaica and Senovia Gutierrez, to the local press at 2:50pm the same day.
Both agendas include items that would declare Gutierrez a board member some two months after her election.
HCCA’s agenda includes items for the election of board officers, Medical Executive Committee policy approvals, a quarterly financial update and a Fiscal Year 2018 budget presentation.
Northcraft’s includes a ratification of votes taken at prior board meetings by Jamaica, Gutierrez, and Northcraft, including the rescission of board resolutions that allowed HCCA to seek loans, appointment of new legal representation, and changes of time and venue for board meetings.
Northcraft’s agenda also includes a request for a special meeting on Wednesday, October 4 to interview board member candidates to replace Linda Wilbourn, and a request for a report from HCCA on any third parties who claim to be owed money.
Regardless of which agenda is followed, the meeting will take place on September 27 at Evolutions, 1425 E. Prosperity Ave, Tulare, at 4pm.
