Dave Maynard is being recommended by the Mercer County Democratic Committee to fill Charlie Box's vacancy on the Mercer County Board. Box, of Sherrard, resigned earlier this month after a debate over Genesis Health providing an interim administrator for Mercer County Nursing Home. He represented District 3, with a term set to expire in 2012. Maynard, of Matherville, had previously served on the county board, but lost his re-election effort to Republican Ron Fullerlove of Preemption last fall. The appointment will be made by County Board Chairman Maxine Henry at the September 6 county board meeting. The full county board must approve the appointment.
