Board Members Wanted!

The Mescal-J6 Fire District needs two Board Members.

This year’s election cycle would have resulted in three seats being available on the MJFD Governing Board. Unfortunately, only one person submitted the signatures and paperwork necessary to be included on the Nov. 8th ballot. As there were not enough candidates to fill the available seats our election was cancelled and Mrs. Joanne Ellsworth will begin her four year term on December 1st. This leaves the MJFD Governing Board with two available seats on the board.

Governing Board Members serve four-year terms and are responsible for the overall financial health of the Fire District, planning for the future, and providing
direction to the Fire Chief. The Governing Board currently meets on the last Wednesday of every month at 6:30pm. Additional public meetings related to the
annual budget are scheduled in May and June, and several work sessions/additional meetings may be required throughout the year. Board Members do not
receive compensation and must attend six hours of mandatory training within the first year.

If you, or anyone you know, have been a resident of the fire district for one year or more, are eligible to vote, and would be interested in serving our community
as a member of the MJFD Governing Board, please email us a short summary of your qualifications and why you would like to be board member to: board@mescalj6fd.com.
