In the wake of a recall election where County Assessor Julie Harrison was removed from office by a more than two-to-one margin, the County Supervisors held a special meeting Tuesday, Dec. 23, to explore how to again open the office. Since Harrison’s removal, and the resignations of two employees, the office has been closed.
At Tuesday’s meeting, the Supervisors discussed filling the vacancy. Then, as a possible development which could signal the direction they may take, the Supervisors allowed former Pierce County Assessor Duane Dean access to the Assessor’s Office so he could look at the records to see if he would be interested in filling the position on a temporary basis.
