King County is looking for South King County residents to fill vacancies on several boards and commissions.

Residents who serve on these committees and boards have the opportunity to have their voices heard and to provide a vital perspective from those living in the south sound region.

“It’s important our residents in South King County feel involved in the process of government,” said King County Councilmember Pete von Reichbauer, who represents a large portion of the south sound on the King County Council. “By serving on a committee or board, our residents get to provide much needed input that benefits our community as a whole.”

Boards and committees with openings include the:

Conservation Futures Citizen Oversight Committee: The committee reviews applications for Conservation Futures tax levy (CFT) funds, and recommends the allocation of CFT funds to the King County Executive and Council which makes the final funding awards. CFT funds are used to purchase or preserve open space lands, including natural areas, passive-use parks, urban green spaces, wildlife habitat, trails, farms, and forests in unincorporated King County and its cities. To apply please contact Ingrid Lundin at Ingrid.lundin@kingcounty.gov.

Regional Human Services Citizen Oversight Board: It monitors and reviews the expenditure of the regional human services portion of levy proceeds in accordance with the adopted Veterans, Seniors, and Human Services Levy (VSHSL) Transition Plan, which guides the activities of the King County Veterans, Seniors and Human Services Levy. To apply to serve on this board please contact Laird Redway at laird.redway@kingcounty.gov.

Women’s Advisory Board: Established in 1978, the King County Women’s Advisory Board (WAB) makes recommendations to the King County Executive and the King County Council to ensure the needs, rights, and well-being of women are taken into account by county government. To apply to serve on this board please contact Scott Ninneman at scott.nineman@kingcounty.gov.
