Torrey Hills board adds two members

The Torrey Hills Community Planning Board appointed two members at its March 17 meeting to fill the board’s new resident seat as well as a seat left vacant by member Suzanne Hall’s recent resignation. Three candidates attended the meeting to be considered, and Brian Britt and Elaine Sampson were appointed via a blind ballot.

Britt, who has lived in the Sea Country neighborhood since 2001, is the managing director and senior wealth adviser with an investment advisory firm.

“I’m excited about actually being able to have an impact and make a difference in my neighborhood,” Britt said.

Sampson has lived in Torrey Hills since 1998, “since the very beginning, and I’ve seen the community grow and change,” she said. Sampson is the president of San Diego BOS Techs, providing IT support services to businesses for the past 23 years.

Now that her child has grown, she has more time and she wanted to use it by being more involved in the community. She lives in the Sands neighborhood.

In the board elections held earlier in the meeting, all candidates were returned to their seats: Kathryn Burton, Jim Casale, Kim Walker, Guy Ravad in the resident seats and Mark Lee and Teresa Henning in the two business seats.
