Utility to quiz board candidates.
Four Eugene residents are seeking to fill a vacancy on the Eugene Water & Electric Board. Commissioners will interview the candidates at a special board meeting Tuesday night.
The position on the five-member board overseeing the municipal utility came open in early January when Commissioner Sandra Bishop moved into her new seat as the at-large representative. The seat she vacated represents City Council Wards 6 and 7.
The applicants are:
Janet Marshall, an elementary school teacher interested in conservation and ecology issues.
Bonnie Kuhn, an auditor and member of the Bethel School District budget committee.
Henry Masterson, a human resources consultant who worked for the federal Bureau of Reclamation in Colorado.
Richard Cunningham, an insurance broker who ran for City Council last year.
Interviews will be conducted in open session at 5:30 p.m. in the board room of the North Building at EWEB headquarters, 500 E. Fourth Ave.
Commissioners tentatively plan to reconvene at noon Thursday to discuss the applicants. They may make a selection at that time. If so, the new commissioner would be sworn in at the next regular board meeting, March 18 at 7:30 p.m.
The board must appoint a resident to the seat by April 6. The term will expire Dec. 31, 2004.
EWEB commissioners are nonpartisan and unpaid.
