Congratulations to Caroline Kelemen (re-elected) and Anton Krieger for their election to the Cuyahoga SWCD Board of Supervisors.
Caroline Kelemen is seeking a second term on the Board of Supervisors for Cuyahoga Soil and Water Conservation District.
Caroline is a water resources engineer whose interest in water and the environment started in Cuyahoga County. After graduating with a degree in Agricultural Engineering from Purdue University, Caroline returned home to Northeast Ohio.
Since then, they have been involved in many projects to protect the region’s water and soil resources, such as stormwater master planning, erosion assessments and water quality and quantity testing.
As an avid hiker and Appalachian Trail through hiker, Caroline has many great experiences in the outdoors and wants to ensure a welcoming environment so more people can share similar experiences.
Anton Krieger - an adjunct professor at Notre Dame College teaching in the Public Relations Department - discovered his passion for protecting our watersheds during his race for North Royalton City Council in 2019. Since his campaign, Anton has continued his engagement with the public - listening to concerns about flooding, land conservancy, and water quality.
Anton’s involvement with watershed health led him to the Rocky River Watershed Council. He was quickly elected as a board member and now serves on three committees: Conservation & Technical, East Branch, and Development & Fundraising. In his role as chairman of the Development & Fundraising committee, Anton has begun a robust fundraising effort. This includes diversifying the Council’s revenue through pursuing philanthropic grants.
Anton holds a Master’s of Public Administration from Cleveland State University with a dual specialization in economic development and city management. During his Master’s, Anton studied the importance of green infrastructure and land conservation in future city planning efforts in Cuyahoga County.
Anton Krieger is now asking for your vote to help communities view watershed health as an essential issue and not an afterthought.
