The Tacoma City Clerk’s Office is seeking volunteers to serve on committees to prepare statements “for” and “against” the City of Tacoma Proposition No. 1 ballot measure.
The Tacoma City Council has passed Resolution No. 40046 regarding Tacoma Creates, a proposed arts, culture, science and heritage programs for youth, after school and during the summer that would be funded from a sales tax increase of one-tenth of one percent if approved by voters in November. An average Tacoma household would pay $13 per year for a plan that would also offer residents free and discounted access to cultural activities.
To be considered for appointment to a committee, interested individuals should submit a letter of interest indicating whether they are advocating “for” or “against” the measure, their place of residence, and why they would like to serve on a committee. Letters must be received at the City Clerk’s Office at 733 Market Street, Room 11, Tacoma, WA 98402, or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 p.m., on Monday, July 9.
