LLNRD Selects First Female Director for Board Vacancy

Beth Boesch of Columbus has been selected by the Lower Loup Natural Resources District Board of Directors to fill a vacancy for Subdistrict 9.  Boesch, a former employee of Nebraska Public Power District, will represent the subdistrict which is comprised of a section of south central Columbus. 

Boesch becomes the first ever female member of the NRD Board.  Boesch was one of two candidates who applied for the vacancy.  Boesch won appointment by a 10 to 5 ballot of the Board over Bob Bauer, also of Columbus.  There was one abstention.

The NRD Board vacancy was created by the resignation of Kim Walden, who moved out of the subdistrict and could no longer serve.  Boesch is a native Nebraskan and worked 40 years for NPPD.  She is also a registered lobbyist with the Nebraska Legislature.

The Subdistrict 9 seat will be up for election again in 2016.
