Preview

No earlier than 9:30 a.m., following the conclusion of the 9 a.m. Marin County Housing Authority meeting, the Board will present the Employee of the Month award for August 2017 to Pedro Oliveros of the Public Defender's Office.

Review

Supervisor Rice read the following:

Throughout his exemplary 29-year career as Deputy Public Defender, Pedro has been a role model both as a lawyer and as a person. He is professional, caring, and calm, even when under the most stressful of circumstances. His compassion for his juvenile clients and vigorous advocacy on their behalf is unparalleled. He also consistently handles the most complex adult criminal cases.
 
Pedro treats everyone with dignity, respect, and kindness. People who work with him, including those from other county departments, feel involved with a sense of working towards a shared goal. He is respected by adversaries, judges, colleagues, and clients. 
 
It is a pleasure to be around Pedro. He usually wears a big smile, offers a kind word or a joke from his seemingly endless material. 
 
Pedro is an asset to so many throughout the county. The County of Marin is proud to honor him as Employee of the Month.

The Board will hear a request from the Department of Health and Human Services to approve the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) Three-Year Program, Expenditure Plan, and the MHSA Annual Update. The MHSA was approved by California voters in November 2004 and was designed to expand and transform the county mental health services system statewide. In Marin, more than $40 million in funding is proposed over the next three fiscal years for programs to provide mental health and substance use services. The programs include prevention and early intervention, community services, support programs, crisis planning, capital facilities, technological needs, and workforce training. The State of California requires that the local plan is developed and approved by the Mental Health Board and the Board of Supervisors after public comment.
