Auditor Seeks “Con” Committee Members for Voters’ Guide Statement
The San Juan County Auditor is seeking volunteers to write an argument against the annexation of the Town of Friday Harbor into San Juan Island Fire & Rescue. The argument will appear in the Online Voters’ Guide for the upcoming April 2020 Special Election.
Both the Town and SJI Fire & Rescue approved resolutions to propose the annexation. The County Council then approved sending the measure to voters. If approved by voters, the measure would authorize the Town of Friday Harbor to be annexed into and become a part of San Juan County Fire Protection District No. 3 (San Juan Island Fire & Rescue). The Town currently contracts with San Juan Island Fire & Rescue for firefighting services.
The measure has a “pro” committee and is in need of a “con” committee to write a statement against the measure.
The committee may have up to three members, though members may consult other people to serve as their advisory committee and may seek the advice of any number of people to assist in developing the statement. Each committee’s statement must be submitted to San Juan County Elections no later than March 20.
If interested in serving on the committee, please contact San Juan County Auditor Milene Henley at 360-370-7558 or email@example.com.
