The Crow Wing Soil and Water Conservation District welcomes JoAnn Weaver of Breezy Point to the board of supervisors.

Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCDs) are political subdivisions of the state. Supervisors serve four-year staggered terms.

These positions have been filled by local elected officials since the first SWCD was formed in 1937. Since 1971 the offices have appeared on the November ballot as a nonpartisan office.

Weaver is serving District 4, which includes Timothy, Gail Lake, Lake Edward, Pelican Lake and Ideal townships, First Assessment and cities of Crosslake, Jenkins, Pequot Lakes, Breezy Point and Nisswa.

Bob Becker retired from the board, which then appointed Weaver. For many years, Weaver has been involved in city government. She has a passion for gardening and bees, and is a longtime Pelican Lake resident.
