With one single act, the newly elected Ada Commishes met the hopes of Republicans and the fears of the Democrats.
Raul Labrador, the former congressman and Republican activist, was appointed to the Central District Health board, replacing ousted Democratic Commish Diana Lachiondo. The commission’s two new members, Republicans Ryan Davidson and Rod Beck, voted in favor of Labrador’s appointment, while Democratic Commissioner Kendra Kenyon abstained.
Kenyon said she was concerned by the apparent discussions between Beck and Davidson about placing Labrador onto the CDH board. All this comes on the first day of conducting county business by the new board.
Labrador has made public statements which indicate he is an “anti-masker.”
