District Elections Notice: In light of the order Governor Inslee gave to "Stay at Home to Stay Safe" during remarks at 5:30 PM on March 23, 2020, changes to our Board of Supervisors Election are as follows:
Our election will continue as planned with a change in “in-person” voting only. For those voters expecting to vote in-person, they will be able to call Election Supervisor Selena Corwin at (253) 358-9240 by 8pm on Wednesday, March 25th to request that a ballot be delivered to them. There will be signs at the Pioneer Park Pavilion (original location of polling site), our office, our website and District social media sites saying such.
Once a verbal request has been received, a ballot (it will be color coded different than mail-in ballots) will be hand delivered to their home (following strict social distancing procedures) with a self-addressed and stamped envelope by 12:00 midnight on the 25th. Instructions to mail it in with a postmark deadline of March 31st will be included.
The ballot packet shall consist of voting directions, candidate statements, ballot, secrecy envelope and self-addressed and stamped envelope.
Please note that if you already received a ballot via our “mail-in” process, those need to be postmarked no later than March 25th.
Cindy Haverkamp - In 2018, my fellow board members unanimously voted for me to serve out the term of a retiring board member. Since then, I have advocated for conservation districts in Olympia, attended area and state-wide convenings, volunteered with my family at numerous events and strengthened relationships with our many partners. Please retain me so that I may continue guiding Pierce Conservation District in its vitally important work.

Mark Mauren - As a small farmer in Puyallup and long-term steward of natural resources across the State of Washington, I believe the services provided by the Pierce Conservation District are vital to a healthy future. The District must evolve as the county’s population grows, weather patterns change, forests and the agricultural base shrink and habitat becomes more fragmented. My broad background in natural resource management (forest, aquatic and conservation), program management (recreation, transaction, aquatic, timber sales and landscape planning), fiscal and policy development will add value to the board and the Conservation District as it addresses these challenges.
