The Rossmoor Community Services District is proud to announce the appointment of Mr. Jeff Barke as the newest Director of the Rossmoor Community Services District. At its regular meeting of June 11, 2019, President Ron Casey administered the Oath of Office to Jeff Barke who was then formally sworn in as a member of the Board. In May of this year, Director Bill Kahlert resigned from his position with the RCSD Board due to a move out of state. At its May 14, 2019 regular meeting, the RCSD Board voted to appoint a new board member to fill the vacancy rather than incur the expense of a costly election. Director Barke was unanimously selected after the recruitment and consideration of all qualified candidates.

“We are excited to have someone as talented and accomplished as Jeff Barke on the board. As a 22-year Rossmoor resident, former Los Alamitos Unified School District Board Member (2006-2018), and Reserve Deputy for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, he is definitely committed to serving the community. Jeff is a successful medical executive and family man who cares about Rossmoor residents. I am confident that he will be a great asset to our Board, our District and our community.” said President Casey.

Director Barke remarked, “I am excited and honored to be a part of the Rossmoor Community Services District Board of Directors. I believe my past experiences and current relationships will prove to be an asset to the District. I have learned to be an effective servant leader by building relationships and finding common ground without compromising my values. I love Rossmoor and want to help keep it a clean and safe family neighborhood that is the envy of Orange County.”

Director Barke will serve until the next regularly scheduled election in 2020. Following the election, the person so elected would then serve the remainder of former Director Kahlert’s term until 2022.

Regular meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Rush Park auditorium, 3021 Blume Drive in Rossmoor, CA 90720. You may also view televised versions of the meetings on local channel LATV-3.
