Big Bear, CA – Big Bear Airport Director Rick Seifert resigned Saturday morning, May 13, 2017, in an email to Staff and all Directors. The resignation is effective immediately.
Rick Seifert was appointed to the board in mid 2016, after the resignation of another director. Seifert then won election to the seat in November of 2016.
There are several options the Board can take to replace Seifert. They can hold a special election, leave the seat vacant until a regular election is held, or they can appoint a new Board member. The Board has made appointments for the last two vacancies, rather than allowing the public to choose their own representative. If an appoint is made, the appointee shall serve in the seat until someone is elected in November 2018.
