Tuesday, January 15, 2013
After a law enforcement career, followed by eight years as an elected county leader, Paul Pearce’s life is taking yet another turn.
Earlier this month, he began duties as president of the National Forest Counties & Schools Coalition. It is an organization founded to secure federal funding for rural areas.
Before that, Pearce, 57, served on the Skamania County Commission after retiring from a 28-year law enforcement career with the Camas Police Department.
During his time as county commissioner, he learned how dependent the area is on federal forest funds and joined the NFCSC as a board member.
