Posted on 04/03/2019

On March 15th, the Council was informed that Nobile would resign effective June 1, 2019. Nobile was elected to the position in the November 2018 General Election. 

The County Council is responsible for filling the vacancy left by Nobile’s resignation. Based on the past approach for appointment of a Probate Judge, Council has asked the County Manager to advertise for letters of interest, to be submitted to the Council for consideration. The successful applicant would finish Nobile’s term, which will end December 31, 2022. 

Consideration and appointment of a new Probate Judge has been placed on the Council’s May 7 Council meeting agenda (6:00 p.m., Council Chambers). A call for letters of interest is now open and letters are due to the County Manager no later than 5 p.m. on Tuesday, April 30.  

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. 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.
