The Community Action Commission of Santa Barbara County is pleased to announce the appointment of Robert Freeman, CEO of CenCal Health, to the CAC Board of Directors.

Freeman also serves on the Board of Directors of the California Association of Health Insuring Organizations, the association of the six county organized health systems in California.

He is also the president of the Doorway to Health Foundation, the nonprofit foundation that administers the “Healthy Kids” program in Santa Barbara County.

Before coming to the then-Santa Barbara Regional Health Authority in 1993, Freeman spent 10 years in Sacramento serving in various state government capacities, including five years as an assistant cabinet secretary for business, transportation and housing.

This included directing California’s participation in international expositions and serving as executive director of a nonprofit corporation encouraging expanded California trade ties and business development with the European community.

CAC is the largest private, nonprofit agency serving all of Santa Barbara County. It was founded in 1967 and now serves more than 10,000 children, youth, families, adults and seniors each year.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
