Hugh Scanlon has stepped forward as the new president of the North San Joaquin Water Conservation District board of directors. Scanlon replaces former president Bryan Pilkington, who resigned as president retired from the board on Oct. 6.

Joe Petersen filled in Scanlon’s previous position as vice president of the board.

To fill the empty directorial seat, the board had two options. One was to hold a special election and allow the district to vote for a new director. According to board attorney Roger Masuda, this would cost $21,050.

Director Mark Beck suggested the same process that took place when he was appointed to the board. The district could request applications from residents of Division 3, the seat up for grabs, and interview the candidates.

“I don’t think the district has the money for a special election,” said Petersen. “If we don’t get any applications, then we can go to an election.”

The board approved the appointment process. All letters of interest and resumes must be submitted on or before Nov. 14. The seat will go to election in 2012 for a new four-year term. A map of the district’s directors’ divisions is available online at www.nsjgroundwater.org.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
