2019 Hazel Dell Parade of Bands Co-Grand Marshall Neil Kimsey has announced plans to seek re-election as Commissioner for Clark Regional Waste Water District.
In making this announcement Kimsey stated “My highest priority has been, and will continue to be, keeping sewer service costs as low as possible.”
For a typical family, Clark Regional Waste Water District monthly rates are the lowest in the county. The cost to connect a residential or commercial customer to the sewer system are set to ensure that growth pays its fair share.
Clark Regional Waste Water District anticipates that its recent significant growth will continue. Providing for this growth while protecting the interests of current rate payers is Commissioner Kimsey’s main concern.
Commissioner Kimsey is proud of his past work to provide discounted rates to low income senior citizens, creating a program to assist home owners with failing septic tanks, and forming the Discovery Clean Water Alliance to provide enhanced sewer services to Ridgefield and the Discovery Corridor.
Commissioner Kimsey has been an active participant and leader in national, state and local industry and community organizations. He served as Director for the Washington State Association of Sewer and Water Districts and currently serves as Director for the Hazel-Dell Salmon Creek Business Association.
In recognition for his service to the community Commissioner Kimsey (along with his son Clark County Auditor Greg Kimsey) has been chosen to serve as Grand Marshall for the 2019 Hazel Dell Parade of Bands. In 2016 Commissioner Kimsey was selected as Statesman of the Year by the Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce. The Washington State Association of Sewer and Water Districts selected Commissioner Kimsey as the Commissioner of the Year.
Commissioner Kimsey’s re-election campaign committee co-chairs are Brad Lothspeich and Greg Kimsey, Paul Montague serves as Treasurer, and Ila Stanek serves as Secretary.
