RECRUITING YOUTH REPRESENTATIVES TO COUNCIL ADVISORY BOARDS
LACEY, WA, March 28, 2013: The Lacey City Council is currently seeking applicants to serve as youth representatives on the Parks Board, Historical Commission, and Library Board. This is a great opportunity for students to participate in the government process while serving their community.
Eligible candidates should be 16-18 years of age, enrolled as a Junior or Senior in a public, private, or home school within the North Thurston Public School District, and be a resident of Lacey or the urban growth area. Applications are accepted from April 1 to June 1. The term of office is for one year from September to September and is limited to one term.
The Lacey City Council started this program in 2003 with the intent of enhancing youth involvement with local government. Youth representatives will be appointed by the Mayor with confirmation by Council, and will become a voting member of the Board or Commission.
