The Thurston Conservation District (TCD) provides equipment, services and technical support that are essential to the success of our farm. Unfortunately, over the past year TCD’s board has been taken over by an extreme faction who has decimated the agency’s budget and undermined the qualified staff who work in the agency, as detailed yesterday in The Olympian.
Fortunately, we have a chance to turn things around – if we act SOON. Paul Pickett, a long-time environmentalist and former chair of the Thurston Public Utility District is running for a position on the board.
There are only two ways to vote in this election:
- If you have not already done so, please request an absentee ballot from the Thurston County Auditors office (360-786-5406) by 4:30pm today
- Or vote in person this Saturday between 10am and 3pm at the TCD offices, 2918 Ferguson St SW.
Please help us save the TCD by ensuring a return to mature, experienced leadership.
