Auditor seeks writers of argument for and against Lopez Solid Waste Disposal District Ballot Measure

Submitted by the San Juan County Auditors Office.

San Juan County Auditor, Natasha Warmenhoven, is seeking people interested in writing arguments for and against the Lopez Solid Waste Disposal District ballot measure for the voters’ guide.

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 Solid Waste Disposal District has placed on the November general ballot an excess property tax levy to support the District.

If you are interested in writing an argument for or against, 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.
