As we are preparing for a historic election of all seven elected boards of our community, on November 20th, 2016, the newly appointed Supervisory Council would like to kick off this election cycle by honoring all of the hundreds of community servants who have served as either elected board members and or appointed committee members. You are the reason why we have chosen this year’s election slogan to be #OneCommunityOneHeart.
