Auditor’s Office seeks volunteers to write statements against North Olympia ballot measures

Thurston County Auditor’s Office is looking for volunteers to serve on a committee to write statements against two ballot measures sponsored by Thurston County Fire Protection District No. 7 (North Olympia) in the Nov. 4 general election.

The ballot measures include a proposed merger with Thurston County Fire Protection District 8 (South Bay); the other one is a proposed tax increase.

North Olympia fire officials were unable to find folks to serve on the committee, according to a news release from the Auditor’s Office. The statement would be published in the county’s Voter’s Pamphlet.

Those interested should contact Sandy Baxter at 360-786-5408 or baxters@co.thurston.wa.us by Aug. 5.
