State report on Thurston Conservation District recommends 2 board members be removed

WASHINGTON, Thurston CD — After a months-long investigation into leaders of the Thurston Conservation District, state officials are recommending two members of the conservation board of supervisors be removed from office.

Staff for the Washington State Conservation Commission began investigating complaints against board members late last year. In a report released this week, staff recommends the commission remove Eric Johnson, the board’s chairman, and Richard Mankamyer, its auditor.

“(Thurston Conservation District) has seen significant deterioration in fiscal health, accountability and its standing in the community. This deterioration is the result of the actions of Johnson and Mankamyer in their attempts to ‘take back control of the District,’” according to the report.
