Two local measures will appear on the upcoming April 24 Special Election. Orcas Island voters will vote on a proposal to establish a public hospital district. San Juan Island School District has placed a four-year property tax levy on the ballot to support the District’s education programs and operating expenses. Sponsors of both measures have appointed committees to write arguments supporting their proposal. Neither have appointed opposing argument writers.
For that reason, County Auditor Milene Henley is seeking people interested in writing arguments against either measure.
