UMATILLA COUNTY — When George Murdock of Pendleton decided not to seek another term on the Umatilla County Board of Commissioners, the flood gates opened for candidates. Out of that field of six who campaigned in the May primary for the Position 1 seat, two emerged to face off for the Nov. 8 election: Susan Bower of Pendleton and Cindy Timmons of Milton-Freewater.

In the Position 2 race, Commission John Shafer faces a challenge from HollyJo Beers, both of Pendleton.
