Washington Libertarian Appointed to Office

While this is a pretty low level office, it’s at least a start.

I’m a firm believer that third parties need to start working on getting as many people as possible appointed and elected to these types of lower level offices so that they can credibly run for positions on local city councils and school boards and eventually for state house and beyond. Paper candidates are a waste of time and resources.

Washington State Libertarian, Mark B. San Souci, has been appointed to a two-year term on the Pierce County Performance Audit Committee. San Souci fills one of the two at-large positions on the seven-member committee. He is an active member of the Libertarian Party of Washington State, where he serves as Chair of the Nominating Committee.

San Souci is a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel. During his Air Force career, he worked in the Defense Department as a Navy/Marine Corps regional quality of life liaison and worked on a quality management program at McChord Air Force Base. The retired lieutenant colonel say that his experience conducting government performance audits made him realize the importance of audits in reforming government.

San Souci explained, “I can see that their role is to provide valuable information and help the elected officials make decisions. Audits can help in the process but not cure all the problems in government. But any cost effective process that improves the efficiency of government can only be a positive step.”

The Pierce County Performance Audit Committee decides what should be audited, plans specific audits, acquires audit contractors through a screening process, hears audit reports, and makes recommendations for action to the County Council.

Pierce County is located in the central part of Washington State where it borders Puget Sound. It has slightly over 755,000 residents with Takoma as its principal city.
