Applications Sought for San Mateo County Veterans Commission

VETERANS AND members of the public now have the opportunity to serve on the newly established San Mateo County Veterans Commission, which will focus on the needs of the
approximately 33,000 veterans who call this county home. On Friday, July 17, the five week application period opened to form this nine-member Commission whose composition will reflect the diversity of vets in this county and those who provide services to them.

The Board of Supervisors will appoint the nine voting members.

The formation of the Commission is near and dear to my heart. It's our job and our duty to help them.

Applicants must live or work in San Mateo County, or provide services which target and benefit veterans residing in the county.

Applications must be received by 5 pm, August 21. After the close of the application period, applications will be screened and interviews will be conducted in September. The Board of Supervisors will consider approval of the selected nominees at its November 3 meeting.

Applications are available from Alicia Garcia, Deputy Clerk of the Board of Supervisors, 400 County Center, Redwood City or by calling 650.363.4634. Applications are also available at:
