New Rancho Santa Fe Association Finance Committee members appointed


By Karen Billing

The Rancho Santa Fe Association board appointed two new members to the finance committee at its June 19 meeting, filling the vacancies left by Deane Curtis, who resigned in April due to a potential conflict of interest, and Jim Putnam, whose three-year term expires on June 30. The new members are Greg Gruzdowich and Philip Larson.

Outgoing treasurer Larry Spitcaufsky said the committee received six “unbelievably qualified” candidates for the two open spots. They conducted interviews and sought to bring more diversity to the committee with candidates who had talents or experience that committee members didn’t have. Gruzdowich is also a member of the Santa Fe Irrigation District board.
