Two added to group that will write statement opposing library annexation

Two more names have been added to the list of citizens who will provide "con" statements in the Voters Pamphlet regarding Enumclaw's library annexation issue.

When members of the Enumclaw City Council originally forwarded names to the King County Department of Records and Elections, only Charles Sansone was listed. Later, the names of JoAn McKinlay and Una Waldron were forwarded to the county.

They will write the formal statement opposing the April 17 ballot item that would, if passed, see the city of Enumclaw annexed into the King County Library System. Ownership and operation of the library would shift to the district and be out of the city's hands. Property owners would begin paying taxes to support the district operation.

Providing the "pro" position in support of annexation will be Rich Elfers, Richard Hughes and Barbara Braun.
