Ready. Set. Vote! King Conservation District (KCD) is holding its annual Board Supervisor election from January 24, through February 14, 2023. Three candidates are vying for the position: April Brown, Csenka Favorini-Csorbra, and Chris L. Porter. Candidate statements can be found at www.kingcd.org/elections.
Like the last three years, the King Conservation District election will primarily rely on electronic ballot access. Voters may return ballots electronically through the online ballot access system or reach out to KCD for assistance. Democracy Live operates the online ballot access portal and King County Elections will tabulate all ballots and report all results.
KCD is a special purpose district committed to helping people engage in stewardship and conservation of natural resources, serving over two million people in 34 cities and unincorporated King County (excluding the cities of Enumclaw, Federal Way, Milton, Pacific, and Skykomish).
KCD assists private residents with forestry management, streamside and shoreline restoration, farm conservation planning, and other environmental efforts. It works with cities and community organizations to support community gardens, urban forest canopy, and local food systems. KCD is funded primarily by a per-parcel assessment fee.
An all-volunteer, five-member Board of Supervisors is responsible for overseeing KCD operations, budget, and setting policy. Voters elect three supervisors, and the Washington State Conservation Commission appoints two supervisors. Supervisors serve three-year terms.
