Auditor seeks writers of argument against San Juan County Fire Protection District No. 2

Submitted by San Juan County

In order 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 San Juan County Fire Protection District No. 2 has placed on the April Special ballot a levy for authorizing regular property tax to support the District. The District has appointed a committee to write an argument supporting the proposal. It was unable to find persons willing to write an argument opposing the measure.

For that reason, County Auditor Natasha Warmenhoven is seeking people interested in writing arguments against the measure.

If you are interested in writing an opposing argument, please contact the Auditor at, or 360-370-7551. Up to three people may be named as argument writers, though they may seek the assistance of as many people as needed. Statements are limited to 250 words.
