Wingnut Power Grab Alert Election For King County KC Conservation District Board of Supervisors

King County Conservation District Board March 19th election polling locations listed below with endorsement of environmentalist Mark Sollitto.

Here's information from the press release from a 34th LD political activist. Apparently Republicans and rightwing property rights wingnuts have been able to dominate this important county conservation board because no one really pays attention to the fact there's an election.


You can make a difference to protect the environment by taking the time to drop by the Vashon Library this Thursday, March 19th to vote. Because of a technical error the progressive candidate’s name, Mark Sollitto was left off the ballot, and to vote for him you will have to actually write his name on the ballot.

Sierra Club supports Mark Sollitto who is a WRITE-IN Candidate, Mark has a masters in public administration. Here is his community experience: Chair, North Bend Park Board; board of directors, Snoqualmie Valley Rotary; Eastside Fire and Rescue; Snoqualmie Valley Cities Association; Meadowbrook Farm Preservation Association. He is or was a council member from North Bend. Mark filed to be a candidate, but due to a technical error, was not placed on the ballot – hence he is a write-in candidate

Very few people know about this election, so one of the Republicans, like Preston Drew, who opposes King County’s Critical Areas Ordinance which is designed to protect streams, wildlife and wetlands, could easily win this election if progressives don’t turn out in healthy numbers to support Sierra Club’s choice Write-in candidate: Mark Sollitto.

KCD is a natural resources assistance agency authorized by Washington State and guided by the Washington State Conservation Commission.
