Auditor seeks to appoint committee members for voters’ pamphlets

The Pierce County Auditor’s Office is opening a special appointment period to recruit individuals to write committee statements for the Feb. 9, 2016, Special Election Local Voters’ Pamphlet in the following districts:

Committee members needed

  • Against - School District No. 2 (Yelm) – Proposition No. 1 & 2
  • Against - School District No. 19 (Carbonado) – Proposition No. 1 & 2
  • Against - School District No. 320 (Sumner) – Proposition No. 1
  • Against - School District No. 343 (Dieringer) – Proposition No. 1
  • For and Against - School District No. 344 (Orting) – Proposition No. 1
  • Against - School District No. 401 (Peninsula) – Proposition No. 1

  • Against - School District No. 416 (White River) – Proposition No. 1
  • Against - School District No. 417 (Fife) – Proposition No. 1
These districts did not appoint committee members to prepare statements for the local voters’ pamphlet.
