Jackson County Assessor, Clerk & Surveyor Appointment Questions, 3 (May 2011)
All three measures were defeated
These three questions asked county residents if the positions of Assessor, Clerk and Surveyor should be appointed positions rather than elected as they are now. Those in favor of this measure noted that these positions do not have real power to make public policy changes and professional credentials are important for these positions. The positions would have been appointed by the County Administrator and would have been responsible to that position.
