EDWARD T. McINTYRE HAS BEEN APPOINTED BY

THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS

TO

THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY

CITIZENS’ ECONOMY AND EFFICIENCY COMMISSION

 

Mr. Edward T. McIntyre has been appointed by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to the Citizens’ Economy and Efficiency Commission.

 

Commissioner McIntyre has two degrees from the University of Pennsylvania; a BS from the School of Chemical Engineering and an MBA from the Wharton School.  The first twenty-plus years of Commissioner McIntyre’s career were spent with a major energy company in the areas of engineering, finance, accounting, marketing and general management.  Following that, he held financial and management positions in health care, education and services, specializing in dealing with troubled companies.  Most recently, Commissioner McIntyre served as President of Pedus Service, Inc., a provider of janitorial, security and food services to industry and government.  Commissioner McIntyre has served as both an officer and board member of Financial Executives International.  Commissioner McIntyre lives in Glendale with Leona, his wife of forty-four years.  Their two grown children reside in Seattle and the Bay Area.

 

Commissioner McIntyre, in commenting upon his appointment, stated, “For me, personally serving on the Economy and Efficiency Commission provides an opportunity to continue to use the investigative and analytical skills developed in my technical background and most recently utilized with the Civil grand Jury.  My experience with troubled companies has direct applicability to many of the problems found in government today.

 

Created in 1964, the Commission is charged with reviewing all aspects of local government management, operations and policies and submits recommendations to the Board of Supervisors with the objective of improving the economy, efficiency and effectiveness of local government.  Each of the five members of the Board of Supervisors appoints four commissioners to the Economy and Efficiency Commission for a two-year term, with the 21st member being the previous years’ Grand Jury chairperson.  The commissioners may be reappointed.  The members of this Commission provide their time to the County on a voluntary basis and serve without pay.
