When former Mammoth Hospital Board Chairman Don Sage retired from his seat on the board, his fellow board members said they wanted to appoint former board member Linda Salcido who had lost her seat in the November election. The board had actually moved ahead to make that appointment when their attorney said hold on.
With news that they had to legally give notice of the board vacancy, the hospital board did post notices at the hospital and post office. They ran a legal ad in local papers, and local media finally got the information and put the word out about a week before the deadline.
Even with somewhat limited exposure, the hospital board vacancy drew five candidates. They are Linda Salcido, Richard Vroman, Jon King, Michelle Mather and Kiara Raazi – all within the hospital district.
The selection of a new board member will come up at Thursday’s (December 16th) hospital board meeting.
