Alles, Zoglin, James for ECH board: Editorial

With a $650 million annual budget and the uncertainty of impending changes posed by health-care reform, the El Camino Hospital District needs board members familiar with health-care issues who can hit the ground running.

Incumbents Wesley Alles and John Zoglin are board members we clearly want to see continue their service. Challenger Bill James has no board experience, but he has closely followed the hospital saga for more than 10 years. He’s attended meetings and done his homework. A patent attorney, he’s a quick study who deserves the third open seat.

Both Alles and Zoglin are impressive in their knowledge of hospital operations. Alles, a research scholar at the Stanford University School of Medicine, and Zoglin, a high-tech marketing executive, have presided over changes that have dramatically improved the hospital. They come from a completely nonpolitical perspective. We’re lucky to have them. Voters should take advantage of their willingness to continue by electing them Nov. 6.
