Supervisor Elections

Do you have fundamental knowledge about the environment and how it works?

Do you know the relationship between land use decisions and the environment?

Do you know the effect environmental decisions have on other aspects of our lives?

More importantly, do you know local concerns, attitudes and needs and have ideas to share which make a difference on resource management?

Are you willing to take a proactive leadership role for:

  • Setting local conservation priorities?

  • Educating friends and neighbors about the environment?

  • Setting an example?

  • Working with other local units of government, state and federal agencies and other elected officials?

  • Sacrificing short-term gains for long-term benefits?

This November, three (3) Supervisor positions will be up for election:

District II – Monticello Township and the Cities of Albertville, Hanover, Monticello, Otsego and St. Michael. Only those city portions included in the District II geographic Township/Cities are in District II.

District IV – Albion, Marysville and Middleville Townships and that portion of the Cities of Howard Lake, Maple Lake, Montrose and Waverly located within those geographic township boundaries are in District IV.

District V – Cokato, French Lake, Southside, Stockholm and Victor Townships and that portion of the Cities of Annandale, Cokato, Howard Lake and South Haven located within those geographic township boundaries are in District V.

Persons wishing to run for any of these positions MUST be of legal voting age and reside within the area they would represent. Although nominated within a specific Supervisor District, elections are countywide and each Supervisor represents and serves as a representative of the total county on the SWCD Board. Supervisor terms are four (4) years.

At the very minimum, being a Supervisor involves one Board meeting a month and incidental responsibilities; such as, District Committee assignments and attending Area and State meetings. A Supervisor position is a Board position and NOT a full or part-time District staff position. A Supervisor does not receive a salary but does receive compensation for attending pre-authorized meetings, expenses and a mileage reimbursement. Additional information regarding this position can be found on the Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR) website:
