There are currently 20 members of the Clermont County Agricultural Society Board of Directors, which is more commonly known as the “fair board.” This board’s main responsibility is to put on the Clermont County Fair each year. Once elected, the term of office is three years.
The terms are rotated so that approximately one-third of the terms are up for election each year.
This year, the township seats of Goshen, Jackson, Miami, Monroe, and Stonelick are to be elected along with one at-large position.
Anyone interested in running for these positions may do so under the following conditions:
• Must be a member of the Clermont County Agricultural Society (membership can be purchased at the fair board office for $35.)
• For township seats, must be a resident of that township.
• Must have a petition signed by 10 members of the society. Petition must be returned by July 21, 2012 before 5 p.m. Petitions are available in the fair board office until 4 p.m. July 21, 2012.
The election will be held from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Saturday, July 28, 2012 in the fair board office.
Only members of the Clermont County Agricultural Society may vote. You must bring your membership pass with you.
One must be a resident of Clermont County and be 18 years of age or older to become a member of the Clermont County Agricultural Society.
