Pro-incorporation committee continues gathering signatures

Citizens United for Silverdale, the committee supporting Silverdale incorporation, continues petitioning for signatures. The committee has about a month's time left.

Marcus Hoffman, the committee spokesman, said the petition needs to be signed by mid-December. At least 10 percent of registered voters' signatures within the proposed city boundaries is needed in order for the measure to go to voters. The committee remains on target for a special election in late April or May for voters to decide whether they want Silverdale to become a city.

Committee members have been going door-to-door in neighborhoods since the summer getting a signature rate of 80 percent of those who answer the door, Hoffman said.

People who are registered voters residing within the proposed boundaries are able to sign the petition at several local businesses. These businesses include Silverdale Eyecare Center, Silverdale AutoWorks and CPA Randy Biegenwald's office in Old Town Silverdale as well as Pacific NW Title on Mrhre Road and Kitsap County Realtors Association on Munson Street.

If you have a Silverdale business that you would like to become a location for residents to be able to sign the petition, contact Hoffman at (360) 308-2233. If you have a group that would like to hear the 15-minute presentation on Silverdale incorporation, contact UniteSilverdale@gmail.com P.O. Box 3901, Silverdale, WA 98383.
