Muskingum SWCD Supervisor Candidate Announcement

A Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor represents county residents in soil and water conservation and natural resources management. Supervisors set the District’s policy, provide guidance to staff, and assist on projects. The Board consists of five supervisors who serve for three-year terms on a voluntary basis. Supervisors participate in monthly and special board meetings and attend area and state meetings. This year, candidates will be nominated to fill one open position. Potential candidates are expected to have experience relevant to the District’s goals. The qualities of a potential supervisor include:

  • Widespread knowledge of natural resources in the county
  • Complement the existing make-up of the district board so that all geographic, educational, and land-use interests within the district are represented
  • Leadership ability and willingness to share time and talent.

The Nominating Committee will present a slate of candidates. Qualified residents, 18 years of age or older, may also petition to be on the ballot. For more information, call our office at (740) 454-2027 or contact Becky Vansickle, Nominating Committee Chair at (740) 297-1997 or by email at
