New CBO for MV Whisman

Terese McNamee is set to start this week as Mountain View Whisman School District's new chief business officer.

District officials said that McNamee, whose official start date is Sept. 1, has been the chief financial officer of Hayward-based Eden Housing Inc., a non-profit organization that builds, manages, and maintains affordable housing communities for low-income families, seniors and disabled people in Northern California. McNamee leaves Eden Housing at its strongest financial position in its 43-year history, said school district officials in a press release on Aug. 30.

She has a bachelor's degree in science and marketing from Santa Clara University and a master's in business administration from California State University, San Jose.

"After a well-established career in non-profit housing, the district is extremely fortunate that Terese has followed her 'calling' for public education," the press release said.

There have been fewer arrests related to people driving under the influence in Santa Clara County this year compared to the same week-long reporting period in 2010, according to law enforcement authorities.

Between 12:01 a.m. Aug. 19 and midnight Friday, Aug. 26, officers from 13 law enforcement agencies arrested 129 people for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In 2010, there were 158 DUI arrests during the same week. The summer and Labor Day DUI crackdown will continue through Sept. 5.

Funding for the Avoid the 13 Santa Clara County DUI Campaign is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.
