Commissioners decided to continue the procedure last year, even though it was Commissioner Ben Ku’s first year on the board.
“I’ll try not to vacate the country for a long period of time and dump it on you too quickly,” Nash said of Ku’s appointment.
Thursday, Hunter said in a text message that he had asked to be skipped in the rotation. He requested that the appointment not take place with other rote appointments and voted for Ku’s proposal that Fosque, who would have been tapped in 2021, take the role next.
“I know I will have to miss some meetings this year and don’t want to risk not having me or the chairman there,” Hunter said.
Hunter said he knew he wouldn’t be present for at least two meetings. Fosque said in Tuesday’s meeting that she would be happy to serve.
