The Pierce County Auditor’s Office is opening a special appointment period to recruit individuals to write “against” statements for the August 4, 2015, primary election local voters’ pamphlet in the following districts:
“Against” committee members needed
These districts 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 current election webpage.
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@example.com. Appointments will be made in the order that the requests are received.
The deadline to request a committee appointment is May 12, 2015 at noon. The deadline to submit a committee statement is May 12, 2015 at 4:30 p.m.
NOTE: Individuals requesting appointment on May 12 must be prepared to submit the statement by email on the same day. The auditor’s office is unable to extend the deadline.MEDIA CONTACTS:Julie Anderson, Pierce County Auditor(253) 798-3189Julie.Anderson@co.pierce.wa.us
