Sequim area resident Scott Chitwood was elected to the Clallam Conservation District board of supervisors in the March 13 election. Chitwood took office after the election results were certified by the Washington State Conservation Commission at their May meeting.  Sequim dairy farmer and current conservation district vice-chair Ben Smith was the only applicant to file for his expiring position as one of two appointed supervisors, thus  continues in his seat.

Don Hatler retired in May 2018 after serving 12 years as District Treasurer.  We thank Don for all his support and guidance over the past 12 years!
