The Sunset Empire Park and Recreation District is still seeking district residents interested in becoming a candidate for one of five board seats that are up for election this May. Although three of the current board members have expressed their interest in running for re-election, all five of the board positions are up for election this year. Three of the positions are three-year terms, and two are two-year terms.
Interested individuals will need to pick-up a candidate filing packet from the front desk of the Sunset Pool located at 1140 Broadway in Seaside. Packets must be submitted to the Clatsop County Elections Department, 820 Exchange St, Suite 220 (2nd floor) in Astoria, no later than 8 p.m. on Thursday, March 16.
The cost to file is $10, however, the fee will be waived if the candidate is able to gather 25 signatures from registered district voters.
