King Conservation District (KCD) is holding its annual Board of Supervisors Election. Three Candidates are on the ballot for one seat. The election will use online ballot access. This is a mostly county-wide election that does not appear on the standard special elections ballot. The KCD Board of Supervisors oversees a roughly $8 million dollar budget paid by residents of King County through rates and charges. Yarrow Point has received grants from KCD in the past, and we hope to secure future grant money for other projects in our town and in the Wetherill Preserve.
Voting Period January 24, 2023 at 8:00 AM to February 14, 2023 at 8:00 PM
