UAPD Doctor Appointed to Measure A Oversight Committee

The Alameda County Board of Supervisors has appointed  Dr. Milton Lorig, a UAPD Board Member and longtime employee of the Alameda Health System, to the Measure A Oversight Committee.  Adopted by Alameda County voters in 2004, Measure A authorized the County of Alameda to raise its sales tax by one-half cent in order to fund additional medical services for low income, uninsured, and indigent County residents. As part of the Oversight Committee, Dr. Lorig will help monitor use of Measure A funds, which are approximately $100 million annually.  Congratulations Dr. Lorig!
