2018 Board of Supervisors Election & Appointment

Sequim area resident Scott Chitwood was elected to the Clallam Conservation District board of supervisors in the March 13 election. Chitwood will take office after the election results are 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 will continue in his seat.
