At it’s regular meeting today, the Pierce County Council introduced and scheduled for committee and public hearings two charter amendments.
The first, sponsored by Joyce McDonald and Dick Muri, would make the county council offices non-partisan
The second, sponsored by Muri, Roger Bush and Stan Flemming, would make the county executive non-partisan.
If successful, that would leave just the prosecutor as a partisan office. Voters have already made the shift for auditor, assessor-treasurer and sheriff.
It would take five votes for the council to place a charter amendment before voters. Republicans have a 5-2 advantage on the council.
Here’s a pdf of the updated agenda containing the two measures.
