Probate Judge Vacancy Application Deadline Tuesday

Applicants interested in filling the Probate Judge vacancy created by the resignation of Anne Nobile last month are reminded to submit their letter of interest to the County Manager’s office no later than the deadline of 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 30.
The successful applicant will finish Nobile’s term, which will end Dec. 31, 2022.
Interested applicants are asked to submit a one- or two-page letter indicating why they would be interested in serving as Probate Judge. Under State law, any qualified person over the age of 18 who is a resident of Los Alamos County may serve. Letters of interest should be mailed or hand-delivered to County Manager Harry Burgess, Los Alamos County Municipal Building, 1000 Central Avenue, Suite 350, Los Alamos, NM 87544 by the deadline.
Earlier in March, the Council was informed that Nobile would resign effective June 1, 2019.
Nobile was elected to the position in the November 2018 General Election. Consideration and appointment of this position has been placed on the Council’s May 7 Council meeting agenda (6 p.m., Council Chambers). Candidates who submit a letter will be expected to attend the May 7 Council meeting to respond to questions from the Council about their letter and qualifications.
