John Redding is ready to work for YOU.

Statement of Education and Qualifications

One of the benefits of having a long, varied business career is acquiring a wide range of skills. My educational resume includes a B.S. in Physics, an M.S. in Nuclear Engineering, and an MBA.

I spent 30 years working for General Electric beginning as a nuclear engineer and ending in charge of marketing and sales. Along the way I acquired financial management and six sigma skills.

After General Electric, I was involved in three startups in the energy industry where I learned how to think and act like an entrepreneur in order to build a business from the bottom up.

Upon arriving in Mendocino, I joined the Board of Mendocino Area Parks Association during which time I was the Board president. I served on the Board of the Mendocino Botanical Gardens and most recently the Mendocino Coast Humane Society.

For the last three years I have been the Treasurer of the Mendocino Coast Health Care District, an elected position. During that time, the Board secured the future of the hospital by entering into an affiliation with Adventist Health to operate our facilities, launching plans to build a new health care facility and formulating a plan that will both retire all term debt and set aside money for the new facility.

But the sustainability of any healthcare facility depends upon a thriving, prosperous community with new jobs and new housing. I was prompted to run for the Board because of the lack of urgency for addressing these needs throughout the County.
