Sad, sudden loss: Polk Commissioner Mike Propes

A Sad Goodbye to Mike Propes
By Oregonians for Food and Shelter
We want to extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Polk County Commissioner, Mike Propes. Mike served the citizens of Polk County for several years, his wisdom and expertise will be deeply missed. Services will be held this Saturday in Dallas.
The official process to choose who will serve the remainder of Mike Propes’ term on the Polk County Board of Commissioners is a two-step procedure that is likely to take about a month to finalize.
Because Propes was a Republican, the Polk County Republican Central Committee will compile a list of three to five nominees to the Board of Commissioners. Upon receipt of the list, the board will chose a procedure to review candidates and then vote to select one.
Helga Thompson, chairwoman of the Polk County Republican Central Committee, said the committee has scheduled a public meeting on Wednesday, March 30, at 7 p.m. at the Dallas Civic Center, 945 SE Jefferson St., to begin the process of compiling a list of nominees.
