Justice Greg Perkes announced today that he is seeking re-election to the 13th Court of Appeals. 
 
Perkes was first elected to the 13th Court of Appeals in 2010.

“It’s been a joy to serve on this board and the community,” he said. “It comes with mixed emotions but it’s time for some fresh insights to come in.”
 
Board president Richard Wheeler thanked Weber for his service and time to the hospital and district. He credited Weber for “solid, good decisions” for the hospital.
 
Wheeler appointed board members Charles Papacek and Dr. John Frels as a search committee to look for a person to appoint to fill the vacancy. Weber’s position on the board would face election in May 2016.
