Long a dissenting voice, Elliott Gorelick has announced his resignation from the City of Alameda Health Care District Board of Trustees.

Mr. Gorelick announced his resignation in a blog post that appeared today, writing, “Although the Hospital is not something people really pay much attention to, its continued existence at a cost to the taxpayers of Alameda in both dollars and death is an embarrassment.”

The Hospital survives only due to a city-wide $300 annual parcel tax which raises some $6 million each year.

Gorelick was elected to the board in November of 2010.

As of press time, he had not yet responded to a request for a statement.
