Workshop to explain Clark County charter review group

By , Columbian staff writer

The League of Women Voters is hosting a free workshop to explain the role of the as-yet unelected Clark County Charter Review Commission.

The 15 members of the commission will be elected on the Nov. 3 ballot. Their job will be to conduct an examination of the charter, which serves as the county’s constitution. It was adopted by Clark County voters in 2014 under the condition that it will undergo a review every five years in a process that may include proposing amendments.

“This is not a forum to hear from the candidates who are seeking election to the commission,” Judy Zeider, chair of the League’s Civics Education Committee, said in a media release. “Rather it’s an opportunity to learn about the tasks facing the new commissioners.”

The course will be co-hosted by the Fort Vancouver Regional Library at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 21 and held remotely because of the COVID-19 pandemic. To register, visit The program will last about 90 minutes.
