Flores Selected To Fill Mossberg's Seat

New Commissioner Expected To Be Named Soon After Interviews


October 22, 2020

A selection committee appointed Rich Flores on Wednesday to fill the vacancy on the Kimball County Board of Commissioners created by Commissioner Brandon Mossberg’s resignation when he moved out of the county. The term will end in January 2023.

Following is the original report on the commission vacancy in the print edition of the Observer, which went to press before Flores was appointed:

Interviews for the vacancy on the Kimball County Board of Commissioners were planned for Wednesday, Oct. 21.  The interviews were open to the public, beginning at 9 a.m. in the Commissioners Room in the Kimball County Courthouse.

Former Kimball County Commissioner Brandon Mossberg’s resignation left a position open on the three-person board and according to state statute the vacancy must be filled within a 45-day period. 

In addition, state statute requires that a board comprised of County Attorney Dave Wilson, County Clerk Cathy Sibal and County Treasurer Cindy Rahmig choose the individual to fill Mossberg’s remaining term of two years.

Their choice was expected to come soon after the interviews.

The following individuals submitted a letter of interest and interviewed on Oct. 21 – Jim Wertz, Rich Flores, M. Timothy Nolting and Justin Perry.

The deadline for the applicants to submit a letter was Oct. 16.
