City of Puyallup Seeking Applicants to Write Pamphlet Statements For Bond Measure – The Suburban Times

The City of Puyallup seeks applications from residents to write “for” and “against” statements for the voters’ pamphlet regarding a bond measure for a public safety facility.

If the bond measure is placed on the ballot, statements for and against it will appear in the local voters’ pamphlet.

  • Name
  • Residence address
