Hospital, Sanitation Special Elections One Week Away
As the ever-changing landscape of national politics marches on, at the local level there is an important election scheduled one week from today. On Tuesday, May 3, voters will go to the polls to vote on new directors for both the Leadville Sanitation Board and St. Vincent Hospital (SVH) District Board of Directors.
It’s important to note, first off, that due to the June 28 primary election, Lake County Clerk and Recorder Patty Berger explained to Leadville Today that each of the elections for the hospital and sanitation will be handled by the special districts, as opposed to by her office as it has been done in the past. Therefore, voters will not be casting ballots at the courthouse, but rather make two separate stops to have their voices heard for the sake of democracy.
On Tuesday, May 3 from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m., registered voters and residents of the St. Vincent Hospital District can vote for up to two of three possible candidates. This election will be held in the cafeteria at St. Vincent Hospital, located at 822 W 4th Street in Leadville, Colo.
According to SVH Controller & Designated Election Officer Sharon Brenner, the voting area can be accessed from the west side of the building on the lower level where the “Polling Place” sign will be posted. Once the voter has entered the building, they are to follow the “VOTE HERE” signs to the actual location. Voters are asked NOT to use the Physical Therapy entrance as patients are being seen in this area. Thank you.
Hospital district voters will vote for two candidates, with the top two vote getters being elected to the hospital board. The candidates are
- Byron Copley : (719)293-0035 & email@example.com
- Shirley Hoffacker Shirley: (213) 453-3226 & firstname.lastname@example.org
- Ramey Hinton: (719) 429-2637 & email@example.com
