OLYMPIA — Bud Hover, a former two-term Okanogan County commissioner, was appointed Tuesday as the new director of the state Department of Agriculture. Hover, 58, runs a 2,300-acre hay and cattle ranch near Winthrop. He was county commissioner for eight years and served until January, after losing his bid for re-election to Ray Campbell by 10 votes.
