Would you like to be the next Dauphin County commissioner?

Dauphin County President Judge John F. Cherry is now accepting applications for the position, with an application deadline of May 25, according to the county.

The position pays just over $100,000 per year.

On May 31, commission Chair Jeff Haste will retire after more than 18 years in the job. According to PennLive, Haste said that he wishes to dedicate his time to a recently launched business development and government relations business.

To apply, a candidate must reside in Dauphin County and have been a registered Republican at the time that Haste was last elected, which was in November 2019.

Candidates should send a resume and cover letter to the following address:

President Judge John F. Cherry
5th Floor
Dauphin County Courthouse
101 Market Street
Harrisburg, PA 17101

The court then will determine interview times for candidates.

The successful candidate will serve the remainder of Haste’s term, which expires in January 2024.
