Volunteers  sought to craft  ballot  issue language

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. The charter amendment will go before voters in the Nov. 5 General Election.

The city council will appoint members to the Pro and Con Committees at their Aug. 7 meeting. Committee statements are due to Kitsap County Elections by Aug. 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 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 or City Clerk, City of Bremerton, 345 6th Street. Suite 600, Bremerton, WA 98337
