TORRINGTON – Following a lengthy question-and-answer session during the Goshen County Commissioners meeting on Tuesday, Zachary Miller, a nurse and administrator at Community Hospital in Torrington, was appointed to fill a vacant seat on the Goshen County School District No. 1 Board of Trustees.
Miller was one of four candidates vying for the position, one of two seats left vacant when Linda Kessler and Dr. Robert Byrd resigned from the board in January. One of the candidates in this round, Heather Saul of Lingle, had been appointed to fill one of the vacancies previously, but a snafu with her voter registration left her ineligible for the position, which threw the decision in the County Commissioner’s court.
In addition to Miller and Saul, Michael Ridenour of Yoder and long-time Goshen County resident Danielle Wondercheck had also expressed interest in the position.
In other business, the Commissioners named Hansen Vaughan of Lingle to a five-year seat on the Goshen County Fair Board.
