Conservation District seeks nominations

Sep 17, 2020

Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District, whose mission is to provide assistance to the community in conservation of land and water resources, has one opening on its five-member Board of Supervisors.

The volunteer board, which is responsible for guiding the District’s business affairs and operations, comprises three elected and two appointed supervisors, who each serve overlapping three-year terms. This year it is seeking nominations for one elected position. 

Anyone interested in running for the office of supervisor, or voting in the election must be a registered voter within the boundaries of the Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District.

Candidates need have only an interest in conservation and a willingness, at a minimum, to participate in a monthly board meeting at the District office. To run for an elected position, a candidate must submit a nomination paper signed by 25 Knox and/or Lincoln county residents.

In addition, the SWCD Board welcomes Associate Supervisors, non-voting members appointed by the Board, who may have an interest in the general activities of the District or a specific area of interest or expertise to share.

Nomination form and ballots may be obtained by contacting the District office. The completed election document must be received at the District office by 2 p.m. Oct. 22, after which candidates will be posted on the website at www.knox-lincoln.org/supervisor-elections. Ballots must be received at the District office no later than 4 p.m. Nov. 10 and will be counted at a future meeting.

To receive nomination papers or a ballot, or for more information, contact Election Superintendent at 893 West St. (Route 90) in Rockport, 596-2040 or julie@knox-lincoln.org.
