MEET THE CANDIDATES FOR BROWN SWCD BOARD
This year, the Brown Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) has two Supervisor positions up for election. SWCD candidates will appear on the November 6, 2018 general election ballot. While SWCD Supervisors are elected to represent the entire county, they must reside in one of the nomination districts up for election.
The nominating districts and candidates running for election to the Brown SWCD Board this year include:
District 3 – Greg Roiger
District 5 – Jeff Nielsen
SWCDs are special purpose units of government that manage and direct natural resource management programs at the local level. Districts work in both urban and rural settings to carry out programs for the conservation, use, and development of soil, water, and related resources. SWCD Supervisors serve four year terms and meet monthly, discussing the business of the SWCD, distributing state grant allocations to landowners, setting conservation priorities and coordinating conservation efforts with other local units of government and state agencies. SWCD Supervisors are not paid a salary; however, they do receive compensation for attending meetings and are reimbursed for expenses.
Remember to vote for SWCD Supervisor on November 6!
