Snohomish Conservation District to Hold Spring Election for a Board Supervisor
Looking for a volunteer opportunity to protect the environment and help people in your community? Snohomish Conservation District, a local conservation organization, will host an election for a volunteer Board Supervisor on March 20th, 2018 from 2 PM to 6 PM at the District office in Lake Stevens. The District works with natural resources industries such as farming and forestry and with urban landscapes, stormwater management, sustainable living and gardening, youth education and habitat restoration.
The Conservation District Board meets monthly in Lake Stevens to help set policy and direction and consists of five volunteers - three elected by voters and two appointed by the Washington State Conservation Commission. Each term lasts three years. In 2018, one appointed position and one of the three elected positions will be filled. The elected position whose term expires in May 2018 is currently held by Karl Hereth. The appointed position whose term is expiring in May 2018 is currently held by Jeff Ellingsen.
Interested candidates must be registered voters who reside within the boundaries of the District (most of Snohomish County and all of Camano Island). Candidates may be required to be landowners or operators of a farm, depending on the current composition of the District board of supervisors.
Ballot forms will only be available between 2 PM and 6 PM March 20th, 2018 at the Snohomish Conservation District, 528 91st Ave NE, Ste. A, Lake Stevens, and must be submitted in person during those hours.
The published election procedures can be viewed at the District office and are also available from the Washington State Conservation Commission at http://scc.wa.gov/. Contact Election Supervisor Lois Ruskell at 425-377-7020 for more information.
