Accepting Applications for New Commissioner

Position Open for New Commissioner

With the untimely passing of late long-time Commissioner Margaret Wiggins, State laws require that the remaining members of the Board of Commissioners appoint a replacement to serve in Margaret’s position.

To that end, the District will accept applications for a Commissioner to serve on the Board until the end of 2017.

The successful candidate must stand for election in November 2017 for the remainder of Commissioner Wiggins’ term until the end of 2021. This is an opportunity for those who are interested in public service to the community.

Northshore Utility District is a special purpose district formed under title 57 of the Revised Codes of Washington. The District is governed by a Board of five Commissioners. Acting as a body, the Board sets policies to guide the operations of the District. The office of Commissioner is elected at large for a six-year term.

The applicant must be a registered voter residing within the District. A minimum time commitment of approximately 100 hours per year is required.

Any party interested in filling this role should send a resume and cover letter to:

Northshore Utility District
Attn: HRA
6830 NE 185th Street
Kenmore, WA 98028

The letter should include a statement explaining the applicant’s interest in the position. All applications received before October 1, 2016, will be considered. Selected applicants will be invited for an interview. The Board of Commissioners will make the appointment around November 14, 2016.
