Email News Alerts

Ron Staples has filed to run for the District 3 Stevens County Board of Commissioners seat.

Staples filed Friday for the seat being vacated by two-term incumbent Neal Hofland. Hofland announced this spring that he would not seek reelection.


County board incumbents Larry Sayre and Paul Watzke also have filed for reelection. No challengers for their seats have emerged.

Filings opened July 1 and will close July 15.

Staples challenged Hofland in 2004.
