The Key Peninsula Metropolitan Park District’s (Key Pen Parks) Board of Commissioners will have two open positions up for election in November 2015: seats 2 and 4.
Citizens interested in running for either open seat need to file with the Pierce County auditor’s office during the week of May 11-15. To be eligible to run for a position on Key Pen Parks’ Board of Commissioners, interested parties must be a Key Peninsula resident and a registered voter.
The board of commissioners sets the vision and policy that guides Key Pen Parks’ services and is elected to staggered six-year terms. Commissioners attend a regularly scheduled meeting once a month and are encouraged to attend other park district events when their schedules allow.
Filing can be done during the filing week of May 11-15 only at the Pierce County auditor’s office, 2401 S. 35th St., Room 200, Tacoma, or online at the Pierce County auditor’s office elections web page, co.pierce.wa.us.
