An Aberdeen man's seat on the James River Water Development District has been declared vacant.
Larry Lovrien has represented District 2 on the district's board of directors, but he cannot run for re-election because new district boundaries drawn after the 2010 census put his home in District 1.
The current director in District 1 is Randy Grismer, and his seat is not up for re-election this year.
Lovrien says he would not run against Grismer anyway because Grismer is doing a good job.
In the meantime, Lovrien is running for state's attorney in Brown County.
The district supports programs and projects aimed at restoring the James River watershed. The district stretches from Aberdeen to Yankton, and has nine directors.
