VANCOUVER – Each year, the Clark County Auditor’s Office publishes a voters’ pamphlet which is mailed to all households in Clark County. It includes candidate statements and photographs and local ballot measures with supporting and opposing statements written by citizen committees.
A legislative body placing a measure on the ballot shall appoint a committee to write a supporting statement and another committee to write an opposing statement.
The Clark County Council this week voted to propose a safety sales tax ballot measure to fund body-worn cameras, additional staffing and other expenses for the Clark County Sheriff’s Office. The measure would increase sales tax in Clark County by one-tenth of 1 percent. The measure will be on the Aug. 3, 2022, primary ballot.
The county council is seeking volunteers to serve on committees to write a statement for and a statement opposing the measures. Each sales tax proposal would have one “for” committee and one “against” committee.
Clark County residents who wish to be appointed to any of the statement for or statement against committees is asked to contact Kristin Davidson, County Manager’s Office, at Kristin.firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (564) 397-4167 and identify if you are interested in the “for” or “against” committee.
Please contact the county soon; the deadline is 9 a.m. Wed., May 11, 2022.
