The League of Women Voters of Snohomish County is sponsoring three forums for the 2017 primary elections. The forums are co-sponsored by Sno-Isle Libraries and Snohomish County Elections.
Snohomish County District 1, Fire Commissioner Position #3
RFA Initiative for the Consolidation of Lynnwood Fire Department and Snohomish County Fire District 1
Wednesday, June 21, 6:30 to 8:45 p.m.
Lynnwood Library, 19200 44th Avenue W, Lynnwood
Incumbent David F. Chan is being challenged in the August 1 Primary Election by P. Brent Ciafolo, Michael Ellis, Brandy Donaghy, and Brandon Richards. The position term is for six years.
The program will also include an informative session on the proposed Regional Fire Authority (RFA), which will appear on the August ballot. If the proposal is approved by voters, the Lynnwood Fire Department and Snohomish County Fire District One will be consolidated into a single regional fire agency, allowing for standardization of procedures, training and administration, and coordination of resources. The RFA would be implemented on October 1, 2017 and be funded by a property tax levy, beginning in 2018.
