Incumbent Joseph Murray keeps his seat on the Clallam Conservation District board of supervisors without an election.
He was the only candidate to file for the office. State conservation district elections rules say that if the incumbent is the only eligible candidate to file for the position, no election is required.
Polling, which had been scheduled for Thursday, therefore will not be performed.
Mike McFadden was elected March 6 to the Jefferson County Conservation District board of supervisors.
McFadden, who has been an associate supervisor, fills the position vacated by John Boulton, a Quilcene farmer who retired from the conservation district board after serving as supervisor for 58 years.
The Clallam Conservation District is accepting applications for an appointed position now held by Nash Huber that expires this year.
The deadline for applications to the appointed position is March 29.
The application form and instructions can be found at www.clallamcd.org or www.scc.wa.gov.
Clallam conservation district supervisors approved a five-year plan for natural resource conservation at their Feb. 12 meeting.
The five-year plan serves as the guide for annual work plans and grant submissions, and can be found on the district’s website.
Five positions comprise conservation district boards of supervisors.
Three are elected and two appointed by the Washington State Conservation Commission. Each serves a three-year term of office without compensation.
The Clallam Conversation District supervisors meet at 3 p.m. the second Tuesday of each month at the district office, 1601 E. Front St. in Port Angeles.
For more information, phone 360-452-1912, ext. 5, or visit www.clallamcd.org.
Jefferson County Conservation District supervisors’ monthly meetings are at 7 p.m. the first Wednesday of each month at the district office, 205 W. Patison St., Port Hadlock.
