Colorado law provides that holding public office is a public trust and the board of directors have a fiduciary duty to the district and its citizens. Trinidad Ambulance District is governed by a five member board of directors who do just that.
A county wide election was held on May 8, 2018 to establish the most recent board of directors to include newly elected Katherine M. Bueno (2018-2022), Nicholas Mattorano (2018-2022) and James Casias (2018-2020) who is completing the last two of an open four year term. Incumbent board members are Joseph Martinez (2016-2020) and Derek Navarette (2016-2020).
James Casias tendered his resignation effective December 31, 2019.
