Seventh Generation Supper: Home Rule Skagit
Tuesday, May 29, 2018
Anacortes Senior Center, 1701 22nd St.
Margery Hite and Sara Holahan will present an overview of Home Rule Charters, a system of county government used by seven other western Washington Counties. They belong to Home Rule Skagit, a strictly non-partisan organization advocating the benefits of charter government: “a larger, part-time County Council with more representatives; an appointed county administrator with specified qualifications to match the size of the job; the power of citizen initiative and referendum; periodic citizen review of how the system is working; and built-in transparency and accountability, all for the same price we are paying now.”
