The Auditor’s Office is looking for individuals to serve on a committee to write a statement against a proposed levy measure that will be on the November general election ballot submitted by Columbia Valley Park and Recreation District. The statement against the proposed levy will appear in the Whatcom County Local Voters’ Pamphlet. The District has appointed a “For” committee who will submit a statement in favor of the proposition. They have not been able to identify an “Against” Committee.
The Auditor believes it is in the voters’ best interest to have both sides represented. She is seeking interested individuals for an “Against” committee who will write a statement recommending rejection of the proposition. There is a short window of time to allow for this. Persons interested in submitting a statement against the proposition should contact Debbie Adelstein, County Auditor, at (360) 778-5105, as soon as possible. A statement against must be submitted by August 7.
