PETITIONS FOR LOCAL CONSERVATION DISTRICT ELECTIONS AVAILABLE

The State Natural Resources Conservation Council Chair, Rick Hopkins of East Montpelier, today announced the availability of nominating petitions for the statewide elections of District Supervisors in each of the fourteen Natural Resource Conservation Districts. The Windham County NRCD is accepting petitions for one full term (5 years) and one partial term (1 year) Supervisor.

Natural Resources Conservation Districts are local subdivisions of state government established under the state’s Soil Conservation Act to cooperate with landowners and municipalities in applying conservation practices to the land.  Conservation Districts sponsor and coordinate educational, technical and financial assistance to address water quality and the conservation of natural resources.  Conservation Districts offer a unique and powerful vehicle for citizens to become involved with local conservation work and establish programs that protect their environment.  Please visit www.windhamcountynrcd.org for more information about the Windham County Conservation District.

To have your name placed on the November 27, 2018 election ballot for the office of District Supervisor for Windham County, a person must have a minimum of twenty five (25) signatures on nominating petitions.  Anyone owning one or more acres of land and residing within a District may run for, or sign a nominating petition.

One supervisor for each District board will be elected for a term of five (5) years beginning January 1, 2019.  In addition to the full 5 year term, Windham County NRCD is also accepting petitions for a 1 year term to fill a current vacancy. The deadline for submitting nominating petitions to your local Conservation District office is November 12, 2018.

Nominating petitions and additional information may be obtained by contacting your local Conservation District at 802-689-3024 or emailing windhamcountynrcd@gmail.com
