The Whatcom Conservation District has two candidates for the elected position of supervisor. All five of the supervisors are men. The 10 expert staff members provide wide variety of conservation and natural resource services offered to Whatcom residents and agri-businesses.
Poll-site election will be held on March 10, 2015, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Whatcom Conservation District office, 6975 Hannegan Road, Lynden. Registered voters who reside in Whatcom County are eligible to vote. I believe Joy Monjure is clearly the most highly qualified supervisor candidate. She is a very knowledgeable leader with vast practical experience for the position of conservation supervisor.
Professionally, Joy worked for the City of Bellingham Public Works for 23 years as education and communications coordinator providing the public with information about local water resources. Joy served on the Everson City Council from 1995 to 2005 and she served as president of the Everson/Nooksack Chamber of Commerce for two years.
