At the Daniels County Commissioners meeting on Monday, the Daniels County Republican Central Committee presented three names to select one appointment as the new Daniels County Commissioner. The vacancy in Daniels County Commissioner District #1 arose following the recent death of Commissioner Lee Humbert.

The three submitted by the Central Committee were Liana Handran, Matt Stentoft, and Mike Thievin. All were contacted during the meeting and agreed to interview for the position with Commissioners Mikel Lund and Gary Linder. Two interviews were set for Monday this week, and one was scheduled for Tuesday afternoon after press time.
