The Special District Election on May 19 brought little to no change to several agency boards in the Gearhart and Seaside areas, according to final unofficial results from the Clatsop County Elections Office.
Three of seven positions on the board of directors for Seaside School District, or Administrative District No. 10, were up for election. Incumbents Patrick Nofield, of Cannon Beach; Mark Truax, of Seaside; and Steve Phillips, of Seaside, were re-elected to their four-year director positions in uncontested races. Nofield received nearly 99 percent of 1,065 votes with 11 write-ins to nab the Zone 1 Position 1 seat; Truax received nearly 98 percent of 1,034 votes with 21 write-ins for Zone 4 Position 2; and Phillips received about 98.4 percent of 1,032 votes with 17 write-ins for Zone 5 Position 1.
For the Sunset Empire Park & Recreation District Board, incumbents Carol O’Donovan, of Seaside, and Ruth Johnson, of Warrenton, were re-elected for two of the five at-large director positions in uncontested races. O’Donovan received more than 98 percent of 685 votes with 13 write-ins for Position 4. Johnson received more than 98 percent of 672 votes with 11 write-ins for Position 5. The seats carry four-year terms.
