Home arrow News arrow Local News arrow THREE FILE TO RUN FOR OPEN LA GRANDE COUNCIL SEAT


There will be a three-way race for Position 3 on the La Grande City Council.

A. Daniel Stark, who has been chairman of the city's budget committee and a long-time member, filed his petition with City Hall last week.

Tim Hoffnagle, a research biologist for Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, filed on Monday.

Bill Hays, who has been on several city commissions, filed for the post earlier. He is retired.

The deadline was 5 p.m. Tuesday to file for the Nov. 5 election. Those elected will take office Jan. 1.

The person elected will fill an unexpired term created when Doug Winn resigned in March. Since there were more than two years remaining on the term ending Dec. 31, 2004, an election had to be held. Art Rhodes was appointed by the city council to serve in the position until the end of this year, but he said when appointed he was not interested in running for the post.

Stark is director of the Center for Oregon Rural Policy and Research. That agency was created after the Regional Services Institute, located at Eastern Oregon University, lost its funding.

Stark has 20 years' experience as a planner and in economic development. The former Enterprise city councilor was Wallowa County planning director from 1979 to 1984.

Hoffnagle did not immediately return phone calls this morning seeking information about his background.

The Nov. 5 ballot will have contested positions for other city council seats, but their filing deadline was months ago.

Position 5, being vacated by Doyle Slater, is being contested by Gary Lillard and Cory Larvik.

Position 6 incumbent Joel Goldstein is being challenged by Mary Ann Miesner. Incumbent Steve Clement faces Sharon Dykes in the Position 7 race.

Mayor Colleen Johnson and councilor Dana Wright are unopposed. Councilor John Bozarth is not up for re-election this year.
