  • How did we get a new hospital board member without an election? I just read it in the Independent.

  • To answer your question: A board member recently resigned as he was leaving the area. So in compliance with humboldt county ordinance the SHCHD posted a board vacancy notice in the newspapers for 60 days. Then selected the most qualified applicant to complete the term of the previous board member. Whereupon they will be required to run for the office in a general election.

    This stuff can get complicated quickly, but I hope this clarifies things for you.
