LETTER: Citizens share information on how to file to run for local offices
[EDITOR’S NOTE: The following is a Letter to the Editor, written by a Reader. It does not necessarily reflect the opinion of The Tukwila Blog nor its staff:]
We are Tukwila citizens who believe that public officials in Tukwila need to represent the needs of the residents of our city.
We have compiled and attached a Tukwila Candidate Resource Book (download PDF here) as a reference for qualified residents interested in running for public office in Tukwila.
This year there are 10 available seats including the Mayor, Tukwila City Council, Tukwila School Board, Valley View Sewer District and Water District #125. On page 5, you will find a chart highlighting all of these positions. This reference also provides job descriptions and responsibilities.
We have also provided a copy of the King County 2015 Candidate Manual. Candidate filing opens Monday, May 11, 2015 and ends Friday, May 15th.
Please share this information.
Thank you for your time.
