Hospital board seeks candidates

The Tahoe Forest Hospital District’s board of directors is looking to fill a vacant seat on by July 25.

“It’s a wonderful way to serve the community,” said MaryLou Sullivan, a district board member who has served 10 years on the board.

Sullivan said the district will be looking for applicants with a business background and an interest in health care to replace Larry Long. General leadership capabilities, a passion for public health, and having distinctive view points are other qualities a potential board member might possess, Sullivan said. She said being active in the community and having a strong financial background are also stand-out characteristics.

The applicant must be a registered voter who is a resident of the Tahoe Forest Hospital District in eastern Nevada or Placer Counties, according to board policy. Written letters of interest and qualifications must be submitted by 9 a.m. July 20 to the district administration office to be considered during the board’s meeting July 25.

Sullivan said applicants will be notified to attend the meeting to give a brief introduction and undergo a brief interview process by the board. She said the board will then deliberate and a new board member will be sworn in on that same day.

“We have a dignified process to determine we get the best person to fill the seat,” Sullivan said.

If the appointed board member wants to hold a four-year seat the individual would need to file candidacy by August 11 to run for election in the November general election.
