The Magens Bay Authority has begun the process of filling the vacancy left on the board by the passing of Elliott “Mac” Davis on Sept. 11, it announced in a news release on Tuesday.

According to its mission statement, the authority preserves unimpaired the natural and cultural resources of the Magens Bay Authority park system, without discrimination of any kind for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations.

Civic-minded individuals who would like to serve should send a letter expressing their interest and detailing what they feel they can contribute in line with the mission statement, the release stated.

A resume should be included, and both sent by email to info@magensbayauthority.org. The deadline is Thursday, Nov. 4 at 5 p.m.

In other news, Barbara Petersen has been named the new chairperson of the Magens Bay Authority Board of Directors.

Petersen has committed to “strive for transparency with all aspects of the board,” according to a news release announcing her appointment when the board met in executive session at its meeting on Oct. 29.

Along with her appointment, Avery Lewis was named vice chair, and Cecile deJongh will remain treasurer. The secretary position, which Davis held, remains vacant.
