SPRINGFIELD - The Clark County Board of Elections has named a new director. 30-year-old Matthew Tlachac will be replacing Mark Oster, who is retiring in August.
In a 3-1 vote, the Clark County Board of elections selected Tlachac from a field of 10 finalists for the director's position. Mark Oster, the current director, announced his retirement three weeks ago. Since he is a Democrat, the board was forced to find another Democrat to replace him.
Oster says that politics did not play a role in his decision to retire. But he felt the timing was right to step down.
