Charleston District 2016 Commissioner Election Results

The General Election was held on November 8, 2016.  Charleston Conservation District had one position up for re-election.  The result of the Commissioner election was the re-election of John H. Smoak.  John serves the board as Vice Chairman and is a great asset to the Charleston Soil & Water Conservation District Board.  In taking the Oath of office, a commissioner commits to exercising the rights and responsibilities of duties as spelled out in the Soil & Water Conservation Districts Law, 48-9 of the South Carolina Code of Laws.  This law charges Conservation District Commissioners with the responsibility of providing first-line leadership in developing and implementing plans to meet conservation needs.  The Charleston Conservation District would like to congratulate John Smoak for his volunteer service to the District beginning in 2009.  He will serve a four year term (February 1, 2017 - January 31, 2021).     Congratulations John!
