Eric's Candidate Statement:
I am a candidate for the King Conservation District Board of Supervisors. I currently operate a dairy farm in Duvall. I am also a King County native and a three generation farmer. I have served on the as a representative of the dairy industry and was its first Chair. I am currently also serving as a of Drainage District #6 and am serving on the King County Agricultural Drainage Assistance Program Advisory Committee.
I have had the opportunity to work with the King CD for many years, both as a user of their farm planning and cost-sharing assistance, and as a partner agency when I worked for King County as Livestock Program Manager and as the County’s Agriculture Program Manager. I have always found their programs to be very helpful and have seen the great job the district does in working with the county’s residents and jurisdictions with resource protection and conservation needs.
I feel my background as a farmer, a former agriculture commissioner, and as a former Agriculture Program Manager for King County, that I am uniquely qualified to serve as a member of the KCD’s Board of Supervisors. I understand the importance of resource conservation for all of our county’s residents, rural and urban alike, and will do my best to see that the conservation needs of all of our residents are met and would appreciate your vote in the upcoming election.
I have a simple website up that has the above statement as well as some key endorsements to date. Please see www.ericforkingcd.com and check it out.
I am pleased to have been endorsed the King County Conservation Voters as well as a number of key members of the community that care deeply about resource conservation, agriculture, and the food systems in King County. More endorsements will be coming soon.
I hope you will consider voting in this important election, and consider voting for me as the next Supervisor for the .
