The City of Puyallup seeks applications from residents to write “for” and “against” statements for the voters’ pamphlet regarding a bond measure for a public safety facility.
On June 6, 2023, the City Council approved second and final reading of an ordinance which authorized a ballot measure to be placed on the November 7, 2023 general election ballot for voter consideration of a general obligation bond for the purpose of constructing a public safety building. Once the bond measure is placed on the ballot, statements “for” and “against” the bond will appear in the local voters’ pamphlet. Each statement, whether for or against, will be written by a committee of not more than three residents.
Applicants interested in serving on either the “for” committee or the “against” committee must 1) reside in the city limits of Puyallup and 2) submit in writing the following application information in order to be considered:
- Residence address
- Phone number
- Email address
- State which committee you wish to serve on, i.e. either the “for” committee (writing a statement in support of bond measure) or the “against” committee (writing a statement in opposition of the bond measure)
- Share your reason for wanting to serve on the committee of your choice
Applications must be submitted electronically to email@example.com or delivered to the City Clerk’s office at Puyallup City Hall (333 S. Meridian). Application information must be received by 5 p.m. on Friday, June 30, 2023. For more information, call 253-841-5480 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
