German term or phrase: Amtmann
Es geht um den **Amtmann der Landwirtschaftskammer***.

Ich habe "bailiff" gefunden, bin mir aber nicht sicher, ob dieser
Begriff im US-Englischen für diese Position korrekt ist, aufgrund
seiner lt. Wikipedia eher einer Polizeifunktion entsprechenden
Bedeutung.

Vielen Dank!
