Kristine Cox was appointed to Position Five on the Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District’s Board of Commissioners in 2020 after the position was vacated by resignation. The term for Position Five that was vacated runs from 2018 to 2023. However, state law appointments made by the Board of Commissioners are effective only until the next election at which any Commissioner position is on the ballot; at this time, the voters elect a qualified candidate to serve out the term of the position that was vacated. Because Commissioner positions are on the ballot in the general election in 2021, Position Five will be on the ballot as well. The person elected will serve out the remainder of the term that was vacated until 2023, at which time Position Five will be on the ballot for a full six-year term.
