Board re-elects Sedgwick woman WHCA president

MILBRIDGE — Patricia Schroth of Sedgwick, president of the Washington-Hancock Community Agency board of directors, was reapppointed Tuesday to a two-year term of board membership and re-elected to the board presidency. Schroth had served since Nov. 28, 1989, as the board president, having been elected during the board’s annual meeting.

The reason for the reappointment was the expiration of Schroth’s original two-year term as a board member, which began in July 1988. Six members of the agency’s 18-member board are appointed by their board colleagues as representatives of the “private sector” of the area population. The private sector is considered to include businesses, churches, educational institutions, minority groups and labor unions.

Six board members serve by appointment as delegates of the commissioners of Hancock and Washington counties, three from each county. Another six members serve by public election as representatives of the low-income sector of the area population, three from each county. All board members serve two-year terms.

Schroth will serve as president until the board’s 1990 annual meeting, which will be held in November.
