Peter Hohorst and Joshua Rymer filed Monday for the two open positions on the Sonoma Valley Health Care District board of directors. The two candidates have declared the intention to run together for the four-year positions that will be filled in the November election.
Hohorst said he plans to run with Rymer in the election because he sees him as a valuable addition to the board.
“Joshua has brought to the board some very valuable thinking in recent years. It’s clear he cares about our hospital and our community, and I see his expertise in strategic planning enabling him to make strong contributions as the Board moves forward,” Hohorst said.
Hohorst has served on the board for six years, currently as treasurer, and is a past board chair. He is a manufacturing consultant whose broad experience in facilities planning and construction led him to play an instrumental role in building the hospital’s new wing, which opened in February, and houses the new Emergency Department and Surgery Center.
Hohorst’s service to the City of Sonoma includes serving as board member and president of the Sonoma Community Center, chairman of the Fourth of July Parade Committee, and board member of the Diamond A Mutual Water Company. He has been a member of the Sonoma Valley Health Care District board of directors since 2008.
