The first day of the special three-day filing period for the five at-large Mason County Metropolitan Park District Commissioners netted one candidate. John Piety filed for Park Commissioner Position 5.
All candidates who file will appear on the General Election Ballot long with the proposition to create the MPD in unincorporated Mason County. If formed, the Mason County Metropolitan Park District would have a 20-cents per thousand of assessed value property tax levy and the five commissioners to govern parks in the County.
Those interested in filing for one of the Park District Commissioner seats can do so until 4 PM Friday. You can file in person at the Mason County Auditor’s Office, 411 N. 5th Street in Shelton, or online by clicking here.
