County Commission Second District Appointment

Commissioner Mark Harmon nominated Mark Campen. Commissioner Tony Norman after passing and all Commissioners having either nominated or passed, he then nominated Robert Wolfenbarger. Commissioner Craig Leuthold nominated Chuck Williams.

It took three votes to select an appointed Commissioner. Chuck Williams was eliminated on the second ballot. On the second vote Mark Harmon on the first vote voted for Campen and then on the second vote changed to Wolfenbarger and then on the third vote changed back to Campen. Commissioner Thomas Strickland changed to Campen on the third and final vote. Commissioners Craig Leuthold, Greg Lambert and Phil Ballard voted for Williams. On the third ballotLeuthold changed to Wolfenbarger, Lambert to Campen and Ballard to Wolfenbarger.

Securing 7 votes of the 11 Commissioners, Mark Campen was selected.

Obviously, Campen is somwhat unknown and from most observers Chuck Williams had a better interview. Here is hooping that Chuck Williams will not give up and stay in arena.
