The McKinley County Board of Commissioners discussed a new appointment to the Rehoboth McKinley Christian Health Care Services Board during their June 16 meeting.

The county has four appointees on the RMCH board. Since one of those members stepped down in May, the item was brought to the County Commission to hear their recommendations on a new appointee.

Chairman Billy Moore recommended Sen. George Munoz, D-Gallup, be appointed to the RMCH board.

“We do have four appointees on the RMCH board, so I think we would like to use one now to [help] the incoming commissioners and keep our current situation [of four people],” Moore said.

The item was approved with a 3-0 vote.
