The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors will meet Tuesday, Nov. 13 to discuss the process for filling the impending vacancy following James Ramos’ likely win in the 40th Assembly District.
The county’s charter requires the board to appoint a successor to finish Ramos’ term as 3rd District supervisor, which ends in 2020, within 30 days of the vacancy. The charter, however, does not specify a process for the board to follow in making an appointment, according to a county news release.
Ramos, who was first elected to the board in 2012, was ahead by Republican and San Bernardino Councilman Henry Nickel, by nearly 15 percentage points, according to the latest unofficial election results posted Friday, Nov. 9 by the Registrar’s office.
On Tuesday, the board will consider setting the application filing period for Nov. 14 through Dec. 3. They will also consider scheduling a special meeting Dec. 11 to conduct public interviews of applicants.
Potential successors must be registered to vote within 30 days of the application period and must live within the 3rd District, which includes all or portions of San Bernardino, Grand Terrace, Colton, Loma Linda, Highland, Redlands, Yucaipa, Barstow, Big Bear Lake, Twentynine Palms, the town of Yucca Valley, and surrounding unincorporated communities.
For more information on Tuesday’s meeting and the 3rd District visit the county’s website.
The board will meet for public session at 10 a.m. in the Covington Chambers on the first floor of the County Government Center, 385 N. Arrowhead Ave., in San Bernardino.
