Crook County Selects Commissioner To Fill Vacancy

PRINEVILLE, OR -- The two remaining Crook County Commissioners say they have selected Susan Hermreck to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Commissioner Jerry Brummer. Hermreck is the seond woman to serve on the County Court. 

Judge Seth Crawford and Commissioner Brian Barney interviewed eight candidates for Position One last week. In a statement, Crawford said, "Susan Hermreck will be a great fit for this position. She has been an important part of our community and understands the issues that Crook County is facing. I am especially excited for her knowledge of roads and business." Commissioner Barney added, "Susan's perspectives coupled with her extensive experience, maker her an outstanding choice to contribute to the growth and progress of Crook County. 

Her appointment is expected to become official at the December 19 County Court meeting.

 

A previous verson of this story reported Hermreck as the first female to serve on the Crook County Court, based on incorrect information provided to KBND News. Frances Burgess was, in fact, the first woman, serving from 1974-1987. KBND News regrets the error.
