Lancaster County officials will appoint a new commissioner to the County Board to fill the seat Jennifer Brinkman vacated after moving to a job in the Lincoln mayor's office.

Candidates seeking consideration for the northwest Lancaster County seat (District 2), which generally extends from downtown Lincoln and west to Emerald and the county line, must be registered voters, live in that district and submit their application on or before May 31.

The term runs until Jan. 7, 2021, and the seat will be on the ballot in 2020.

Brinkman was named newly elected Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird's chief of staff.

Brinkman's resignation took effect Monday.
