Zaido steps off town's health board

June 30th departure seen as a 'good time'

SOUTHBRIDGE — Come June 30, most people will be focused on filling seats on the town's elected boards, but one — and maybe two — seats on a major appointed board are also up for grabs.

After six years, Judy Zaido is stepping down from the Board of Health, and if Rinaldo Bernardone wins a Town Council seat, he'll have to resign, too.

"I've been there a while, and I just thought it'd be a good time to have new faces on the board," Zaido said, noting her house is for sale and she might be moving out of town.

Zaido started on the board in August 2003, appointed in part for her experience as a Harrington Hospital medical technician with a focus on infection control. Ironically, the current H1N1 (swine) flu issue probably represents the most relevant use of such a background, but Zaido noted the most important issue she participated in were the landfill hearings.
