San Juan County Auditor

To ensure an informed electorate, and in accordance with state law, every district that places a measure on a ballot is responsible for appointing committees to write voters’ guide arguments both for and against the proposition. If a district is unable to appoint committees, that responsibility falls to the county auditor. The Lopez Island School District has placed on the August primary ballot a levy to support educational expenses and operations support of the district. The district has appointed a committee to write an argument supporting the proposal. It was unable to find opponents willing to write an argument opposing the measure. For that reason, San Juan County Auditor Milene Henley is seeking people interested in writing arguments against the measure. If you are interested, email mileneh@sanjuanco.com, or 360-370-7558. Up to three people may be named as argument writers, though they may seek the assistance of as many people as needed.
