Vacancy opening on Liquor Board
By SCOTT BUTKI / Staff Writer
The Washington County Democratic Central Committee is accepting letters of interest for anyone interested in replacing Donald L. Mellott on the Liquor Board, Committee Treasurer Harry Smith said Thursday.
Mellott's appointed position on the Washington County Board of License Commissioners, commonly called the Liquor Board, ends in July. The positions are for six-year terms.
Mellott said he is seeking a reappointment.
One of the reasons he wants to be reappointed is so he can continue working on ongoing Liquor Board projects, he said.
Despite that, the committee can pass along to the governor letters of interest from other parties, Smith said. The committee may choose to recommend who is appointed but the governor has the final say, he said.
