Board to appoint interim administrator and hear Health Officer’s farewell address


SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash. – The Board of Health will convene on a special day and time for the purpose of appointing an Interim Administrator for the Snohomish Health District and to conduct regular Board of Health business as set forth on the agenda below.

In this new role, he will head the Governance and Direction department with direct oversight of the Offices of Finance & Budget, Strategy & Innovation, Communications & Public Information, and Marketing & Development.

“The Health District is seen as a key player regionally and statewide, thanks in large part to Pete Mayer’s leadership, and we wish him the best in his new adventure,” said Adrienne Fraley-Monillas, current chair of the Board of Health. “The Board is committed to doing our part to work towards a strong and thriving District, and we recognized the need for quick action to ensure continued agency leadership.”
