John P. Thompson, former city manager of Vacaville, has joined the board of directors of NorthBay Health Advantage, a subsidiary of non-profit NorthBay Healthcare, headquartered in Fairfield.

"John's years of experience in management, budgets, strategic planning and urban land use will be a great asset to NorthBay," said Sandy Person, chairwoman of the board of directors.

Thompson, who now owns a consulting firm, arrived in Vacaville in 1979 to accept the job of assistant city manager. In July 1984 he succeeded Walter Graham as city manager. He held that post until retiring from the city in January 2003.

He and his wife, Diane, make their home in Vacaville.
