The Dublin San Ramon Services District (DSRSD) Board of Directors filled two leadership roles this week by selecting a board member to fill an existing vacancy and confirming an interim general manager, who will step in when the current leader retires in November.
At its Tuesday night meeting, the board selected Dublin resident Madelyne Misheloff, who has experience with resources consulting, to serve on the Board of Directors until Dec. 2, 2016. She has worked as a project coordinator for Development Dimensions International and for PDI Ninth House, a San Francisco-based global human resources consulting company.
The vacancy was created in August when board member Dawn Benson resigned to pursue a job within the district as executive services supervisor, a mid-management role that she ultimately did not get, according to the district. Benson later tried to apply for the temporary board post but withdrew her application on Tuesday before an appointee was named.
San Ramon resident Rosalind "Roz" Rogoff -- who writes "The Observer" blog for DanvilleSanRamon.com -- and Dublin resident Alan Kilpatrick also applied for the vacant board seat.
The board interviewed the three remaining applicants in open session and then deliberated publicly Tuesday before selecting Misheloff. The discussions were done in public because the board seat is an elected position.
Misheloff's term runs until the next DSRSD election, which occurs next year.
The board also voted Tuesday to approve a contract adjustment for district employee John Archer, confirming that he will become the district's interim general manager once current general manager Bert Michalczyk retires in November.
Archer, administrative services manager, has overseen the district's financial services since the beginning of 2015. He was previously the interim administrative services manager and an accounting supervisor. He was selected as the board's choice for interim general manager at a special meeting Sept. 29.
The board chose Nicole Genzale, who has worked in the Executive Services Division since 2009, for the position of executive services supervisor, effective Sept. 28 -- the job ex-board member Benson resigned to apply for.
