The King Conservation District (KCD) is holding an election for Position 1 on its Board of Supervisors. The candidate filing window for this election is December 4 through 8, 2023. Voting takes place January 23 through February 13, 2024.
The all-volunteer, five-member Board of Supervisors is responsible for overseeing KCD operations, budget, and policy. Supervisors serve three-year terms and steer the direction of resources for the $8 million, 30-staff-person district.
"Board supervisors play a key role in connecting KCD to the broader community,” says Executive Director Rosa Méndez-Perez. “Our conservation district does incredible, on-the-ground work, but we cannot do it alone. Successful work begins with good guidance from a board that reflects the diversity of our community.”
KCD provides assistance to private residents in forest management, farm conservation planning, wildfire preparedness, and streamside and shoreline enhancement. It also offers grants and works with cities and other organizations to support community gardens, urban forest canopy, and local food systems.
