Mt. Diablo Health District Under Fire After Recent Grant
Mt. Diablo Health Care District awarded a $50,000 grant to the not-for-profit NorCal Transitions to help the homeless, but the group's founder has a criminal record that includes felony grand theft, unpaid taxes and allegations of domestic abuse. The health district already has come under fire for spending the majority of its funding on overhead, elections and lawyers, and rarely offering community services. This week, officials likely will vote to terminate the health care district.
