Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Do you know that Tri-City is facing lawsuits, loss of money, fines, billing and contract errors? I will bring management skills, efficiency, excellent decision-making, improvement, modernization, financial stability and transparency to taxpayers.
  • Do you know that Medical Errors are third leading cause of death in United States? As a Pharmacy Technician, I know how to prevent medication errors to improve safety, and I know the importance of using aseptic techniques to prevent contaminations.
  • I want Tri-City to have the latest healthcare technology, making sure patients records are kept safe and secure and to reduce billing errors. I speak Spanish, a very important factor that it has been underrepresented on the Board of Directors.

Biografía

This is my first time running for office, and I am running because I have a passion to serve and empower my community, I love to learn new things and to be challenged specially by the status quo, but most importantly and crucial, is that Tri-City is facing governance problems, it is a mess, it is time to fix it, Tri-City needs a new direction. My work and life experiences make me more prepared to hold elected office than my opponents. I have a proven track record, and a reputation of getting things done, I don’t take “no” for an answer, and I never jeopardize quality, I even had to call a couple of Presidents of the countries I am working on in order to get things done.

As a Businesswoman, I have for the last 25 years been promoting Peru as a film location destination throughout all media film outlets in the USA. I have managed numerous television shows and films on locations in South-America. My area of expertise is operating in unconventional environments from tropical rain-forests and deserts to Volcanoes, and on-board diverse platforms including ships, aircraft and NOAA vessels. Amongst some of my credits include “Volcano” National Geographic, “Amazon” IMAX, “The Real Avatar-PERU” Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, “Montecarlo”-Machu-Picchu VFX Plate-20th Century Fox, “The Secret of the Incas” Channel 4, London, “8x1,000” Cineteam/Saatchi-Saatchi/CEI-The Vatican-Italy. 

My clients hire me not only because they trust me, but also because I am a creative, energetic and highly organized and detail-oriented individual, with critical thinking and a unique ability to solve problems, that delivers the best quality services, exceeding their expectations.

Since I was born in Peru, I am very knowledgeable of the cultural idiosyncrasies of the Latin American communities living in USA. I speak Spanish and I live in Vista, two very important factors that have been underrepresented on the Board of Directors at Tri-City Healthcare District.

As a Pharmacy Technician, I know how to prevent medication errors to improve safety, and I know the importance of using aseptic techniques to prevent contaminations.

I am a firm believer of using Science, Technology and the Media to benefit society. When elected, I will bring efficiency, excellent decision-making, improvement, modernization, financial stability and transparency to (you) taxpayers.

Tri-City Medical Center Trustee Candidate - Marggie Castellano — October 6, 2016 KOCT - Your Community Channel

Hello Dear Voters!

Do you know that Tri-City is facing governance problems? If Tri-City closes its door, a few minutes delay arriving to the closest ER can make the difference between life and death. I am running to keep those doors open, for you and me. My invaluable 25 years of Leadership and International Management experience as a Businesswoman and as a Producer will be an asset to Tri-City

I have found out that Tri-City is facing lawsuits, loss of money, fines, billing and contract errors, and according to www.medicare.gov, its overall rating is 2 out of 5, which is unacceptable; this is a clear reflection of mismanagement. I have tried to review their Financial Statements, such as the current Balance Sheet, but to my surprise it is not published in their website. What does this tell you? To me, that is lack of transparency.

The professional best suited for this position should be a Leader with a Business background (like me), and that is the big different between my opponents and me.  

Marggie Castellano, for Tri-City Healthcare District. Thank you for your Vote!
