Public will vote on expanding county commission to five

From The JOLT News:

The Thurston Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) unanimously passed a resolution to ask voters during the November 8 general election to increase the number of elected county commissioners from three to five,

During a public hearing yesterday, the BOCC heard mixed sentiments from residents about its plan to expand the number of commissioners.

Some residents who attended the meeting physically and via Zoom aired their support for creating a ballot measure on the said proposal, citing the need to address the county’s increasing population.

“It is just smart to have five members because we (Thurston residents) are gonna keep growing through the years,” a resident said.
