Five newly appointed members will take their places on the Measure V Citizens' Oversight Committee when the group holds its next meeting April 28 in the board room at the William S. Hart Union High School District administrative office.

The committee is charged with reviewing expenditures related to Measure V, a school construction and modernization local bond issue passed by local voters in 2001. The committee reviews progress on ongoing Measure V-funded projects, conducts on-site inspections and is charged with issuing an annual report to voters after reviewing the district's annual audit of construction projects.

The new members, approved by the Hart district governing board at its April 2 meeting, include Julian Bond, Michael Hogan, Linda Johnson, Wayne Lee and Carol Malcolm. The five, selected to provide a broad cross-section of the community and experience valuable to the committee's work, each will serve a two-year term.

Bond is a major in the U.S. Army and a four-year resident of the Valencia area. He has one child currently enrolled in the Hart district and three younger children who will attend district schools in the future. He has served in a number of administrative posts during his 18-year Army career.

Hogan is president and CEO of Hogan Communications and a member of the Sulphur Springs School District board of trustees. He has lived in the Santa Clarita Valley for 20 years and has three children enrolled in the Hart District. During his 10 years on the Sulphur Springs board, he oversaw four school modernization projects and construction of two new schools.

Johnson is the retired director of manufacturing for Advanced Bionics in Valencia. She has been involved in preparing operating budgets and has served as project manager on construction projects, as well as serving on an oversight committee for continuation high schools in Santa Clara County. She is involved with the Parent Advisory Committee at Rancho Pico Junior High School.

Lee is a NASA engineering manager at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and a district resident for nearly 10 years. He served as a charter member of the district's Measure V Oversight Committee from 2001 to 2005 and is familiar with the district, its expansion plans and challenges of implementing the plan.

Malcolm has been involved with the Mitchell Elementary School PTA and Canyon High School Basketball Booster Club and currently is active on the Parent Advisory Committee and School Site Council at Rancho Pico Junior High. She holds a California teaching credential.

The committee meets at 6:30 p.m. in the district office at 21515 Centre Pointe Parkway, and all meetings are open to the public.
