New public hospital board commissioners sworn into office

Monica Harrington

Commissioners Monica Harrington and Bill Williams were sworn in today by Judge Donald E. Eaton in San Juan County Superior Court.

Harrington and Williams were voted in on Nov. 3, and will begin their six year terms Jan. 1 as unpaid, nonpartisan commissioners on the board of the San Juan County Public Hospital District, positions #3 and #5, respectively.

“I’m just looking forward to serving the community,” Harrington said about their work as commissioners. “I’m excited to dive in and get started.”

“We’re ready to roll up our sleeves and get to work,” Williams added.

A crowd of around 30 community members and supporters attended the swearing in ceremony. Barbara Sharp, commissioner position #2, was sworn in Dec. 2. Sharp will hold her position on the board for two years.

Correction: A previous version of this article stated that Barbara Sharp was fulfilling the rest of Mike Taylor’s term as commissioner position #2. Mike Taylor did in fact finish his full appointed time.
