BACKGROUND:
The Woodlands Township is treated as a conservation and reclamation district to be able to participate in the Harris County Appraisal District (HCAD) director nomination and election process. After deliberation, the Township Board chose not to participate in the 2015 nomination process.

The HCAD Board of Directors is comprised of six members, one of which is appointed through a nomination and election process by all of the conservation and reclamation districts located in Harris County. Each district is entitled to cast a single vote, and the candidate receiving the most votes is elected to a two year term. 

 The HCAD election process, can be summarized as follows:
  • There are six members of the HCAD Board
    • One member appointed by Harris County
    • One member appointed by the City of Houston
    • One member appointed by HISD
    • One member appointed by votes of City Councils of cities other than Houston
    • One member appointed by votes of School Districts other than HISD and by boards of junior colleges with territory in Harris County
    • One member appointed by votes of conservation and reclamation districts
  • Candidates for the conservation and reclamation district consist of nominees from participating districts. There are two individuals running for the conservation and reclamation district votes (in alphabetical order): Glenn E. Peters and John E. Sherman.
  • Conservation and reclamation districts, which include The Woodlands Township, can only cast a vote for one of the two conservation and reclamation district candidates
  • Township staff requested bios from HCAD on the two candidates.
Attached to this memo are the election-related documents provided by HCAD on October 19, 2015, which include a memo from Chief Appraiser Sands Stiefer, a copy of the official ballot and resolution, and bios on each of the candidates. 
RECOMMENDATION:
Authorize the resolution casting a vote for the conservation and reclamation district candidate (name) and authorize the Chairman to sign the official ballot.
