Marin County supervisor dies after day of skiing at Lake Tahoe

SAN FRANCISCO and#8212; A member of the Marin County Board of Supervisors has died of an apparent heart attack during a ski trip to Lake Tahoe.

Charles McGlashan died after Nevada County authorities say he collapsed from what is believed to be a heart attack around 5 p.m. Sunday. The 49-year-old McGlashan had just finished a day of skiing.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Paul Schmidt says emergency crews tried to revive McGlashan, but that he died at a local hospital.

McGlashan, who lived in Mill Valley, had served as a county supervisor since 2005.

Known for his work with the environment, Marin County leaders credit McGlashan with helping with the formation of the Sonoma Marin Area Rail Transit, the creation of the Marin Economic Forum and the initiation and operation of the Marin Energy Authority.

Funeral services are pending.
