Last November Clark County elected 15 freeholders to write a new charter to for the county government. Tuesday, after months of work, an 11-3 vote finalized the new charter that will go to voters in the fall.

The new charter includes a number of changes, including replacing the current three-member commission with a five-seat council. The new council would also appoint a county manager to fill the role of chief executive. In addition to the three new positions the proposed charter also includes a pay cut for comissioners. Their $106,000 annual salaries would be halved by 2017.

Tyler Graf from the Columbian newspaper will fill us in on what he anticipates will be a lively political campaign.
