CATAWBA SOIL AND WATER CONSERVATION DISTRICT SUPERVISOR

The non-paid board of supervisors meets monthly to establish local soil and water conservation priorities based on the needs of the district. The Board chairs work groups to address these priorities through the installation and implementation of best management practices that protect and improve the natural resources within the district. The work is accomplished by partnering with local, state and federal agencies; businesses; and non-profit organizations for technical and financial assistance. . The Division of Soil and Water Conservation administers ACSP, AgWRAP and CCAP, and holds each local board of supervisors accountable to these state programs. Each district is governed by a five-member board of supervisors. Three supervisors are elected on the general ballot as non-partisan candidates during the regular election of county officers, and two are appointed by the NC Soil and Water Conservation Commission upon recommendation of the local district board of supervisors.

Position/philosophy statement I am and have ways been a farm/nursery guy. I want to help keep our land healthy and our water clean.
The position is to help in keeping our water clean and to help guide land usage. That usage is weither it is for housing, industry or farming.
I have been in the Agriculture business all my life. I am a Masters Plantsman and have held private and commercial spray licenses. I have been an operations manager of a nursery/peach orchard and a cow/calf operation. I have a bachelor's degree in Plant and Soil Science from Southern Illinois University. I am now retired but continue to work as a Plant Partners Vendor. I have and always have had a great love for the land.
Right now I believe the most pressing is the control of pollution of our water. I also believe a need to stop the loss of top soil from erosion.
Water well permits, no till farming assistance, and helping our farm community control run off.
