City needs volunteers to craft pro, con ballot language for charter change

Two people have volunteered to help craft ballot language supporting an amendment to the City of Bremerton's charter, but no one has stepped forward yet to help create language opposing the change.

The charter amendment would allow the city council to meet outside of city limits while remaining in Kitsap County. As things stand now, the charter only allows city council meetings to take place within city limits. The charter amendment will go before voters in the November 5 General Election.

The city council will appoint members to the Pro and Con Committees at their August 7 meeting. Committee statements are due to Kitsap County Elections by August 27.

The city council is seeking three volunteers to serve on both the Pro and Con Committees to write statements for and against the proposition. The committees will submit written arguments to Kitsap County Elections to be included in the Local Voter's Pamphlet received by City of Bremerton voters.

Those who are interested in serving on either the Pro or Con Committee should send his or her name, mailing address, email address, telephone number, and which Committee you wish to serve on to the City Clerk at City.Clerk@ci.bremerton.wa.us or City Clerk, City of Bremerton, 345 6th Street. Suite 600, Bremerton, WA 98337.
