Solana Beach deputy mayor elected to chair FACT Board of Directors


Full Access and Coordinated Transportation (FACT) recently welcomed Solana Beach Deputy Mayor Dave Roberts as the fourth chairman of the FACT Board of Directors. Roberts was elected to replace former Coronado Councilman and FACT Chair Phil Monroe. Roberts has been a FACT board member since 2006.

FACT is based in Oceanside and was formed and designated as the San Diego County’s Consolidated Transportation Services Agency (CTSA) in 2006. CTSAs are mandated by California State law to coordinate and consolidate human services transportation.

“I am honored to have been elected by my colleagues to serve as the next chairman of the board of directors,” said Roberts, who is also running for the Third District Seat on the county Board of Supervisors. “This innovative public/private sector initiative assists seniors, persons with disabilities, and social service recipients in San Diego County to meet their transportation needs. This is exactly the experience needed to serve on the Board of Supervisors to enhance our quality of life.”

Roberts was appointed by SANDAG to serve on FACT. In addition, he serves on the North County Transit District Board of Directors where he serves on the Executive Committee and is chair of the Marketing Committee, Service Planning and Business Development Committee. He is also an alternate board member on the SANDAG Board of Directors, SANDAG Transportation Committee, and Joint Committee on Regional Transit. Roberts also serves on the Advisory Board for WTS Advancing Women in Transportation San Diego County.

Roberts is a two-term councilmember and deputy mayor of the City of Solana Beach. A nationally-recognized expert in health care policy, he was appointed in both the Bush and the Obama Administrations to national advisory leadership roles focused on maximizing the cost-effectiveness and delivery of Medicare, Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Programs. He is a past chairman of the San Dieguito River Valley Park Joint Powers Authority. He has adopted five children from the county ranging in ages from 3 to 16 and has lived in San Diego County for nearly two decades. — Submitted press release
