Whitman County Gazette - Serving Whitman County since 1877

Farmington mayor, clerk resign offices


June 6, 2019

Farmington mayor Dave Baker has resigned, effective May 31, citing a new employment schedule. A former councilman, he took over the mayor’s job in 2015 after the resignation of James Woomack.

Clerk/Treasurer Barb Dial/Flomer also submitted her resignation, accepted by the mayor, to also take effect May 31.

Mayor Pro-Tem Mark Hellinger will lead the council until they appoint a new mayor to complete Baker’s term.


Incumbent Lavon Walser and Max Mohan are the two people who have filed for the seat one on the Farmington town council. Walser was listed by her former last name, Erickson, on the auditor’s compilation of office holders before the start of the filing period.

Also, the Gazette incorrectly listed her last name in last week’s report on the extended filing period.

Incumbent Diana Oliver filed unopposed for Farmington seat three.

W. Mark Hellinger did not file for seat five, and under state law he will remain in the open seat.
