Health board mem­ber Ha­ley leav­ing post


An­thony Ha­ley, a Cen­tral Health board mem­ber since 2009, said he plans to leave the hospi­tal district board and has asked not to be reap­pointed to a four-year term.

Ha­ley, a lawyer and founder of the lob­by­ing firm HRWK Inc., said he reached the de­ci­sion to avoid any con­flicts of in­ter­est that could arise be­tween his board ser­vice and his rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the Bay­lor Health Care Sys­tem dur­ing the up­com­ing state leg­isla­tive ses­sion.

Ha­ley was the board’s sec­re­tary and re­cently was named trea­surer. His de­par­ture fol­lows Vice Chair­man Frank Rodriguez’s an­nounce­ment that he is step­ping down. County com­mis­sion­ers will in­ter­view four ap­pli­cants who want to suc­ceed Rodriguez in Jan­uary, said Deece Eck­stein, the county’s in­ter­gov­ern­men­tal re­la­tions co­or­di­na­tor.

Ha­ley’s po­si­tion on the nine­mem­ber board is the only one that county and city of­fi­cials ap­point to­gether.

Any­one in­ter­ested in be­ing con­sid­ered for the vol­un­teer post for which mem­bers are not paid, can con­tact Eck­stein at 854-9754 or by email at Deece.Eck­stein@co.travis.
