GOP committee will choose from among 9 candidates in submitting list of nominees for commission


Nine people have qualified as possible candidates to replace Carl Stiff on the Baker County Board of Commissioners.

Stiff, a Republican, resigned earlier this month due to health reasons.

In accordance with Oregon election law, the Baker County Republican Central Committee will meet May 1 to choose nominees, from among the nine candidates, to forward to the two remaining commissioners, Fred Warner Jr. and Tim L. Kerns.

Warner and Kerns will choose the person to replace Stiff and serve the remainder of his term, which continues through the end of 2014.

To be eligible, candidates must be registered Republicans.

The nine candidates are: Mark Bennett, Roger Coles, Chris Dunn, Dick Fleming, Bill Harvey, Jeff Nelson, Jeff Petry, Terry Schumacher and Tom Van Diepen. 

State law allows the GOP committee to nominate three, four or five candidates.

Suzan Ellis Jones, chair of the Baker County committee, said officials from the state Republican Party recommend the county committee nominate three people.
