King Conservation District Board of supervisors election March 16

Monday, March 15, 2010

King Conservation District (King CD) will be holding a district-wide election for an open seat on its board of supervisors on Tuesday, March 16.

King CD, working with Bellevue-based election administrator Election Trust, will be providing seven
polling locations throughout the district. Candidates for the position include Mary Embleton, Seattle; Mara Heiman, Auburn; Teri Herrera, Redmond; Kirk Prindle, Seattle and Max Prinsen, Renton.  For candidate backgrounds, visit the website.

Registered voters who reside within the district, which encompasses most of King County, are eligible to vote in the election, with the exception of residents of cities that do not fall within the King CD's boundaries (Federal Way, Enumclaw, Skykomish, Milton and Pacific). Voters must present proper identification, such as a driver's license, passport or birth certificate.

The all-volunteer, five member board includes three elected members and two who are appointed by the Washington State Conservation Commission. All supervisors serve three-year terms. The board of
supervisors conducts regular public meetings to oversee the district's budget and provide guidance and oversight to district staff.

The King CD provides information and technical assistance programs available to all landowners within the district's boundaries (most of King County) on a voluntary, non-regulatory basis. The district provides grants for conservation-focused projects and programs, and initiates community outreach activities that include workshops, education programs, site visits, farm plans, and consultation on land, water, and wildlife management.

As one of 47 conservation districts in the state, the King CD is a natural resources assistance agency authorized by the State of Washington and guided by the Washington State Conservation Commission. The election is held in accordance with Washington Revised Code RCW 89.08.
