The Pulaski County Commissioners this week reorganized the county home board, appointing eight people to the board after receiving a number of applications. Commissioner Larry Brady said the commissioners met last week in an executive session to review the county home board, and some of the questions asked of applicants was how they see the county home in the future, past work experience, education, party affiliation, organizational skill sets, strengths and weaknesses.
Brady thanked everyone for submitting applications, and future applicants, for stepping forward for their community. He said Pulaski County is not a community that can “rest upon only a few shoulders.”
Commissioner Tracey Shorter made a motion to nominate Bill Rowe, Robert Powers, Larry Rausch, Emily Hizer, Steve Reimer, Robert White, Machelle Roudabush and Judy Loehmer for the county home board. Commissioner Terry Young seconded the motion and it passed unanimously.
Powers, Rausch, Loehmer and White are Democrats, while Hizer, Rowe, and Roudabush are Republicans.
An organizational meeting is expected to take place in the near future.
