TERMS AND ELECTIONS

The initial terms were measured from the date the management contract was signed with the City of San Diego. As Director terms expire, seats stand for election at the annual meeting. Property owners within the MAD (or authorized property owner representative) are eligible to stand for election and to vote.

The ELJ Management Contract with the City of San Diego was signed on September 4, 2019.  This date governs the start of the terms of the members initially appointed to the board.

RECENT ELECTION

Results were announced and accepted at the ELJ Board Meeting on September 17, 2020. The following Board Members were elected to 3-year terms ending September 2023: Andy Nelson, Member of the Board of Directors of the La Jolla Community Foundation; Kathryn Kanjo, Non-Profit Property Owner or Owner’s Representative; Ann Parode Dynes, Residential Property Owner or Property Owner’s Representative; and Tony Gild, Representative of the La Jolla Community at Large.
