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.

The Clark County Women, Infants and Childrens' program or WIC, will be cut by more than $240,000 and officials expect to close at least one office or lay off staff.

WIC helps poor families pay for formula, canned or frozen fruits and vegetables, milk and bread. Executive Director Rita Jones said it's hard to predict if more services or staff will be cut in the near future.
