Bob Noonan, a farmer from Cornlea, was appointed as the newest member of the LENRD Board of Directors at last night’s board meeting. Noonan fills Cory Beller’s seat. Beller recently moved outside of his subdistrict boundaries and could no longer serve.
Noonan teaches agronomy and diversified agriculture at Northeast Community College in Norfolk. He was selected from among four applicants to serve the nine-month term. He has also filed for election to a two-year term to the board to complete Beller’s four-year term. The other three applicants were: Gene Hemmer of Humphrey, Dave Kathol of Norfolk, and Bob Lueninghoener of Stanton.
LENRD General Manager, Mike Sousek, said "The three unsuccessful candidates have also filed for election for the two-year term. They can remain candidates for that position, or withdraw from that race and file instead for a four-year term to replace Director Tim Tighe of Humphrey, who has chosen not to run for re-election."
The deadline for candidates to file for office or for the three unsuccessful candidates to change their filings is March 1st.
