Tuesday is deadline to vote for Aspen hospital board
Residents in the Aspen Valley Hospital District have until 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 3, to drop off their ballots at the hospital’s administrative office for the board of directors election.
Mail-in ballots were sent out last month. Seven candidates are vying for two seats on the board, including one held by Dr. Mindy Nagle, who is seeking re-election.
The other candidates are Dr. Greg Balko, Michael Lyons, Joseph Nedlin, Peter Hershberger, Rudi E. Scheidt Jr. and Dr. Eric Willsky.
As of 2:30 p.m. Monday, the hospital had tallied 1,897 ballots, said Amy Trubiroha Wells, the medical facility’s executive assistant.
The hospital district includes all of Pitkin County except for Redstone.
With many lingering questions still surrounding the fate of Aspen’s historic Old Powerhouse, City Council decided during Monday’s work session to hold off on providing staff direction on moving the preservation project forward until more information can be presented.
