    2017 Supervisor Election

     

    Board of SupervisorsImage result for ballot box image

    Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District is guided by a volunteer board of local landowners - three elected and two appointed supervisors - who each serve overlapping, three-year terms. Supervisors are registered resident voters of Knox or Lincoln counties and are responsible for guiding the District’s business affairs and operations. Elected and appointed supervisors, along with non-elected associate supervisors, oversee technical assistance projects; education, outreach, and conservation programs; and set priorities for District employees.

    A general election - open to all registered voters residing in Knox and Lincoln counties - is held each fall to fill the vacancy for the elected supervisor whose term is expiring.

    THIS YEAR WE ARE SEEKING NOMINATIONS FOR AN ELECTED SUPERVISOR.                       

    Anyone interested in running for the office of supervisor or voting in the election must be a resident registered voter within the boundaries of the Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD). 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 at 893 West St in Rockport. To run for an elected position, a candidate must submit a short biography and a nomination petition 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.      

    TO BE NOMINATED and/or VOTE:

    1. Nomination petitions and ballots may be obtained by contacting the District office or DOWNLOAD HERE.
    2. Candidates must submit completed nomination petitions and biographical information to the District office by 4:00 pm on Monday, October 16, 2017, after which candidates will be posted here.
    3. Ballots must be received at the District office no later than 4:00 pm on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 and will be counted at our monthly board meeting on that date.

    To receive nomination petitions, a ballot, or for more information about becoming a supervisor or associate supervisor, contact Election Superintendent Hildy Ellis at 893 West Street (Route 90) in Rockport, 596-2040 or hildy@knox-lincoln.org.

    Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District is an equal opportunity employer and provider.
