Talbott, who’s tenure as hospital commissioner spanned seven years, cited family reasons for her resignation. Her husband, Jeremy, an EMT and former assistant harbormaster at the Port of Friday Harbor, will soon leave for Alaska to be harbormaster for the city of Valdez.

Keri Talbott, A customer service clerk for the Town of Friday Harbor, will remain on San Juan until she and the couple’s two young daughters depart for Alaska.

Talbott’s elected position expires in 2017. The hospital district will accept letter of interest, with qualifications, to fill the unexpired term; deadline is June 20. The commission anticipates questioning candidates and voting on a replacement when it meets June 25.
