Q & A for Board of Directors Candidates


  1. What do you see as the biggest challenge facing the Conservancy over the next 4 years (your term), and what would be your approach to overcoming it?

Matt Petersen (Area 3): In the recent past, there seems to be misinformation presented as fact, causing unnecessary division within our community. My approach is to help all Freeholders to better understand the issues at hand and the processes to resolve them. There are always multiple solutions to any problem, however, there is always one that stands out to benefit the many over the few. This creates conflict, however, with better clarity and understanding the disagreement can be minimal.
