Director will resign; Board president won’t seek re-election
In the coming months, the Northland Regional Ambulance District (NRAD) could see quite a few changes at the top.
For starters, NRAD Executive Director Tom Taylor tendered his resignation to the ambulance district’s Board of Directors at its meeting Monday night. Taylor’s resignation is effective June 18. He was hired by the district in October of 2006.
“When I interviewed for the job, the Board asked me how long I thought I would stay and I told them five years,” Taylor said. “I’m not a young guy anymore and there are other things I want to do the rest of my life. It’s a good time for me to leave.”
The Board itself could also see change. Two director positions are up for election in April — those of board president Kevin Rawlings and Barry Turner. The deadline for filing to be placed on the April ballot passed on Tuesday and, while Turner filed for re-election, Rawlings did not.
Jamie Morey, the current mayor of Dearborn, filed to run against Turner, as did Ethan Ball. Two persons also filed for Rawlings’ director’s post — Kent Pine and Joe Coons.
Rawlings said he will support Pine.
