Citizens' Alliance for Property Rights

Restoring Private Property Rights Since 2003

  • Skagit County - Charter Push to Deny Rights

    Only seven counties in Washington State have adopted the charter system of government. Seven out of 39 is almost 18% which is not an amount that signifies a large interest in this governing format statewide. The majority of residents of the 32 traditional counties see no advantage in changing their style of local governing. In fact, an argument can be made the charter system is not a good fit for the seven which adopted it. Charter counties become expensive in increased salary costs, bureaucracy laden, and less responsive to constituents.
