Charter Review Voter Pamphlet Statements

| | Comments (0)
Awhile back I thought about running for the county Charter Review Commission. My residency was six months or so short of required to be on the Commission (need three years), so, I didn't.

But another opportunity arose to participate. Six amendments to the County Charter were offered by the Commission for inclusion on the November election, and I volunteered to write some of the voter pamphlet statements. I'll be co-authoring the con statement for biennial budgeting, and the pro statement for moving the Performance Auditor under the County Council instead of the County Auditor.

I'll work with two other people on each of the 250-word statements. They are due September 26, and then the other side (pro vs. con) will get the statements, and then have three days to compose a 75-word rebuttal.

The pamphlets will then be mailed out in mid-October.
