Mason Lake resident John Komen has announced he is running for Mason County PUD No. 3 Commissioner District 2. In his announcement, Komen stated he will self-finance his campaign and not seek or accept campaign contribution. Commissioner District 2 encompasses most of north Mason County from Lake Limerick north to the Allyn and Belfair areas. The seat is currently held by Tom Farmer. Komen’s interest in the PUD 3 commission began four years ago when the utility announced plans to leave downtown Shelton and build a $45 million headquarters on Johns Prairie.
