January 28, Legislative District Re-Organization Meeting, Part II


January 28, 2021, Part II of 23rd LD Re-Organization meeting, Social 6:30 pm. Business starts at 7:00 pm.

In this meeting the focus is on electing the balance of the Executive (E) Board and revising the policy on reimbursement.

If you are interested in running for a position on the E Board in the 23rd Legislative District (LD), please follow this link.

The additional E-Board positions are one person from each school district (Bainbridge, Bremerton, Central Kitsap, North Kitsap) plus four additional members. We still need to maintain gender balance so no gender can be more than one-half of those elected. Any member may run for the E-Board. The term of office is two years and the meetings currently are the second Wednesday of the month, 6:30-8:00 pm and they are monthly.

The other piece that needs to be addressed are the proposed changes to the reimbursement policy. Anyone wishing to speak in favor or against the proposed policy will need to notify the chair no later than five (5) prior to the meeting – January 23. 

If you are interested in running for office or speaking about the policy, please contact the LD chair, Val Torrens at chair@kitsap23rd.com.
