Two candidates stepped forward this week to file with the Clark County Elections Office for the vacant Ward 3 position on the Camas City Council.
Margaret Tweet and Shannon Turk will have their names appear on the Nov. 8 General Election ballot. They will be competing to serve a portion of the 2.5 years remaining on Scott Higgins’ term, from Dec. 5, 2011 to Dec. 31, 2013.
The special three-day filing period ended Friday at 5 p.m.
Turk, a management analyst for the City of Vancouver Parks and Recreation Department, has lived in Camas since October 2002 and has two children who attend Skyridge Middle School.
She has served on the Camas Board of Adjustment since 2002, and has been active with the Camas Educational Foundation.
Turk, 41, said she decided to run for the position because public service is something she has always enjoyed.
