Pierce County Democrats have formally recommended three candidates to be the next county auditor.
In a letter to the County Council dated Tuesday, Chairman Nathe Lawver nominated Katie Blinn, Julie Anderson and Beckie Summers. Lawver said the candidates are "highly qualified to fulfill the duties and responsibilities for the position."
The Democratic Party claims the council must select the next auditor from among the candidates it has nominated. A majority of the County Council disagrees.
