Charter Review Commission seeks applicant to fill open District 4 seat

The Clark County Charter Review Commission is seeking applicants to fill an open position on the commission. The seat is in councilor District 4, Position 3. Applicants must be registered voters currently residing in Council District 4.

The unexpired term begins immediately upon appointment and ends Dec. 31, 2021, at the latest. District 4 is located primarily in the Northeast and Southeast part of the county. Registered voters can learn what district they reside in at VoteWA.gov or by contacting the Elections Department at Elections@clark.wa.gov or 564.397.2345.

The commission meets from 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesdays. Meetings are held virtually on Webex and shown on CVTV channel 23/323 and online at cvtv.org.

The Charter Review Commission is tasked with reviewing the county’s home rule charter approved by voters in November 2014. This will be the first review of the county’s charter.

The 15 commission members were elected in the Nov. 3 general election. Per the charter, three members were elected countywide, and each of the four county councilor districts has three commissioners.

Former Republican state representative Liz Pike, of Camas, beat Camas City Councilman Greg Anderson for the District 4, Position 3 seat in the November 2020 general election, garnering 58.62 percent of the votes. Pike did not respond to requests for comment in time for this newspaper’s publication.
