Mark Sollitto
CANDIDATE
KING CONSERVATION DISTRICT
BOARD OF SUPERVISORS
ELECTION MARCH 18th-29th


 
35 Years of Success in Conservation and Sustainability


 

                 


Seven million people now reside in Washington State-four million in the Puget Sound Basin and 2.2 million in King County. Population projections by the PSRC predict there will be several hundred thousand new residents arriving over the next 20 years. That growth, to protect the long term viability of our King County farms and forests, must be directed into our cities where the capacity exists to provide basic public services.

As a King Conservation District (KCD) Supervisor , I will bring years of successful conservation experience as a senior staff advisor at King County. I am proud of my work to help protect places like Cougar Mountain, Meadowbrook Farm, Tollgate Farm, Camp River Ranch, the Preston Mill, the Three Forks Natural Area, the 90,000 acre Snoqualmie Forest and individual farms in the Cedar, Green and Snoqualmie River Watersheds.
The quality of life and the future of the Puget Sound Region depends on implementation of policies that protect and enhance local farms and forests, improves water quality in our streams and rivers, increases access to fresh food, especially inside our cities. The KCD is a key partner in implementing these policies locally. Strengthening partnerships with cities, farmers, non-profits, select state and county agencies leverages the impact of KCD Programs. As a former elected official, I know one of the most important traits of a successful leader is to listen to all sides of an issue and only then make judgements based on facts and data.
The KCD includes over two million residents, mostly inside 34 of King County's 39 cities. Enumclaw, Federal Way, Milton, Pacific and Skykomish are not members of KCD.

THE ELECTION:

The election between March 15th-March 29th will be a two step process. During the voting period, voters must first request a ballot online at the KCD website that will go live on March 15th. Requests may also be made by phone. Paper ballots will then be mailed to you. In person voting will also be conducted at KCD Headquarters in Renton (800 SW 39th St. Suite 150 Renton, WA 98057). This approach is due to election costs-King County Elections would otherwise require KCD payment of over a million dollars to conduct the election by mail.
