Honorable Board of Supervisors
John Maltbie, County Manager
Employee of the Month for August 2003
Honor Arlette Hess as Employees of the Month for August 2003 and authorize the President of the Board to sign the commendation.
The Employee of the Month program was established in December 1984 to recognize and honor County employees who consistently demonstrate an outstanding level of performance.
A County employee for over 14 years, Arlette has been the Healthy Kids Benefits Analyst since November 2002. Arlette's main responsibility is to determine eligibility for the newly created Healthy Kids program. The Healthy Kids program was projected to enroll 2,000 children in the first year of operation. In six months, approximately 2,500 children have been enrolled, thanks in large part to the tireless efforts of Arlette. Yet, this is only a fraction of what she does.
This item keeps the commitment of responsive, effective and collaborative government through goal number 21: County employees understand, support and integrate the County vision and goals into their delivery of services.
