Plan to Attend Candidates’ Forum
We are not alone in having important elections in 2014, but the impact on our daily lives by the many local agencies run by elected boards cannot be understated. That is why qualified, energetic and caring people are needed to run for a wide range of important local offices, and we hope you will consider running for office in an area that interests you.
There will be three seats up for grabs on the SLV Water District Board of Directors, since two long-time Directors are retiring from the Board after this year and a third is up for re-election. The job is challenging, and a commitment to protecting the watershed while working to provide excellent water to District customers affordably is a big assignment. Other contests will take place for Boards of Directors in the SLV, including local Fire Protection Districts, BC Recreation and Park District and the SLV Unified School District. Each performs significant service to the community and benefits from thoughtful leadership.
Whether you are willing to run for office, we hope you will plan to both attend the VWC’s upcoming Candidates’ Forum (date TBA), where voters have the chance to see, hear and question candidates, and will plan to vote by mail or in person in the upcoming election.
