Auditor seeks to appoint “against” committee members for voters’ pamphlet

The Pierce County Auditor’s Office is opening a special appointment period to recruit individuals to write an “against” statement for the November 3, 2015, General Election Local Voters’ Pamphlet in the following district:

“Against” committee members needed

City of Orting – Increase of 3.4% Tax on Utility Company Earnings for Police Services

The district did not appoint committee members to prepare an “against” statement for the local voters’ pamphlet. As a result, RCW 29A.32.280 directs the auditor’s office to seek out and appoint up to three members to form the committee. District resolutions and explanatory statements can be found on our November 3rd General Election webpage.

    • Committee appointments and participation; and
    • Word limits, format requirements, and deadlines for statements and rebuttals
    • Committee appointments and participation; and
    • Word limits, format requirements, and deadlines for statements and rebuttals.
  • Have your name appear in the local voters’ pamphlet and waive anonymity.

At least one committee member must be willing to submit phone number, email, or website address for publication in the local voters’ pamphlet. Those interested who agree to the above responsibilities can email a name and phone number to [email protected]. Appointments will be made in the order that the requests are received.

Deadlines
