Elections looking for someone to write against East Pierce annexation of Milton

The Pierce County Auditor's Elections Division is seeking individuals interested in writing an “against” statement regarding East Pierce Fire and Rescue's proposed annexation of the city of Milton.

The issue will be on the April 23 ballot and the statement will be in the voters’ pamphlet issued in advance of the election. The fire district did not appoint committee members to prepare an “against” statement. As a result, the Elections Division is required to seek out and whenever possible appoint up to three members to form an “against” committee.” Those hoping to be appointed to the “against” committee should email their name and phone number to Appointments will be made in the order that the requests are received. The deadline to request a committee appointment is March 8 at 4:30 p.m. The deadline to submit an “against” statement is March 11 at 4:30 p.m.
