League of Women Voters Discusses Propositions

Tuesday, the League of Women Voters of Mason County discussed the two propositions Mason County voters will see on their General Election Ballot: City of Shelton’s proposition to change from a three-member commission to a seven-member council and Mason County’s proposition to increase property tax by 37 cents per thousand of assessed value.

City Manager Ryan Wheaton gave a presentation on the facts of the measure and answered questions from League members. City Commissioner Tracy Moore was in attendance and spoke in favor of the change as well as answered questions.

League member Michelle Bell then outlined the County’s property tax increase and the League discussed the proposition.
