Water and natural resources boards set policy for the public agencies that provide water and/or natural resources to the local community. These boards are sometimes overlooked as elected positions, but can have a significant effect on resource management and development within their communities. One thing that should be noted is that the policies and agendas set by the board must comply with other environmental and resource regulations determined by other agencies. Water and natural resources boards are a great place for people to get involved in politics if the environment is one of their chief concerns.

Application Guidelines
To file for this position follow these three simple steps: 1) Contact the Ventura County Elections Division office at (805) 654-2664 to verify that your address qualifies for the position and that you meet any other candidacy requirements (for example, living within the district for a specified amount of time prior to the election). 2) Obtain the correct filing papers from the county elections office. They may also be available at the City Clerk’s office.
