Larsen represented Sheridan County as a director from 2014 to 2017. He was re-elected in August, but resigned in September citing a conflict of interest.

Interviews will be conducted in Sheridan on Monday, December 18. The PRECorp Board of Directors plans to make its appointment during its regular meeting in Sheridan Tuesday, December 19. The new director will be officially seated at the January 16, 2018 meeting.
