No Candidates Run For One District 5 Seat

June 30, 2016

One District 5 office will be filled by appointment after no candidate qualified to seek election.

With no candidate for the Escambia County Soil & Water Conservation District Group 5 seat, the upcoming vacancy will be filled by appointment of the remaining members until the next regular election in 2018, according to the Escambia County Supervisor of Elections Office.

According to the Supervisor of Elections Office,  Henry Stromas IV pre-filed, but did not complete the qualification process for the nonpartisan seat.

The Escambia County Soil & Water Conservation District Group 5 seat is currently held by Stephen Jones until his term expires in January 2017.

The Escambia County Soil & Water Conservation District is a “special district established to provide for control and prevention of soil erosion and for furthering the conservation, development and utilization of soil and water resources, and the disposal of water, to preserve natural resources, control floods, assist in maintaining the navigability of rivers and harbors, preserve wildlife, protect the tax base and public lands, and protect and promote the health, safety and general welfare of the people”.

    >>>I am going to ask the Walnut Hill Ruritan Club to come up with a nominee for the consideration of the Board.

    That’s typical politician. Inside of doing like Escambia County does with open positions and running a story on northescambia.com asking interested persons to submit their resumes, let’s turn to one very small group that does not even allow women to join and ask this special interest group for an appointee. How does the Walnut Hill Ruritan Club represent women? or Century? Or Molino? Or Cantonment?

    Guess we know where campaign funds come from.

    As we travel the local Molino/Barrineau Park roadways, we see that the shoulders of most of the roads are deteriorating and caving in. Most of the roads do not have adequate (if any) road striping. I wonder if this “job” would entail correcting these problems before severe erosion takes place and county funds have to be spent to bring in a paving/grading company to correct the erosion problem.
