Emick was appointed to the position at the council’s Dec. 11 meeting where Art Bishop and Larry Cusack also took seats as new members. Bishop will serve as mayor pro tem.
Emick was born and raised in Southern California. He received his doctorate of pharmacy from the University of the Pacific in 1979. He moved to the High Desert and opened Gemco Pharmacy in 1982.
