Pierce County Auditor Julie Anderson's re-election kick-off party isn't the star-studded re-election shindig Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist held last week. Those who dig awesome bluegrass and Americana tunes will be just as happy as those who watched Molly Ringwald sing at Lindquist's party. Anderson has invited Barleywine Revue to perform at her party, which begins at 5 p.m. Thursday, April 10 at 1625 Historic Tacoma, 1625 South Tacoma Way.

It's about the job, though, and Anderson, who is a friend to musicians and the arts, among others, seeks to continue her service.

Let's read excerpts from her news release.

The Auditor's Office is responsible for overseeing elections for as well as business licensing, public document recording, vehicle licensing, animal control, marriage licensing, and passports.  More than 250,000 people visit the Auditor's Office every year.  Annual transactions exceed two million.

During her first term, Julie Anderson made it her top priority to de-politicize the office, focusing on professionalization and improved customer service.

"My goal has been to restore faith in the efficiency and integrity of local government," says Auditor Anderson. "I'm committed to putting people before politics."

Since her election in a 2009 special election, Julie Anderson has managed the transition to Vote-By-Mail elections, instituted the state's most-expansive ballot drop program, implemented same-sex marriage, and made more transactions available to citizens online.

Announcing her 2014 Kick-off, Ms. Anderson noted her policy of not accepting contributions from elected officials, candidates, employees, or the labor union that represents her employees.  "It's harder to run for re-election without taking these contributions. However, I don't want my re-election colored by any perception of favoritism. The Auditor's Office, more than any other, should be free from back-scratching. The outstanding employees who work in the Auditor's Office operate on merit, not favoritism."
