Candidate’s wife says he doesn’t stand a chance

April 11th, 2008 by Ken

Even Robin Edmondson’s wife says he “doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell” but he’s not deterred.  Edmondson is running for Position Two on the Thurston County Board of Commissioners, as a Republican. and says he has a chance.

Even though no Republican has held a county commission seat in nearly three decades, Edmondson says he finds enough dissatisfaction with the current commissioners to give him a chance.  He points specifically to those residents in Tanglewilde and other areas east of Lacey who are faced with large bills to hook up to sewers – – as much as $39,000 in some cases.

Edmondson says he is working on a plan to find federal and state money and he’s convinced that such funds are available.

He points to his vast and varied background for providing him with the skills necessary to be a good commissioner.  He has worked in nursing, housing construction, as a salesman, a CEO, teacher and public employee.

Edmondson runs on a Republican platform of open government, fiscal conservatism, private property rights and support for law enforcement.

He doesn’t think the “Top Two” primary will keep him off the General Election ballot and believes that his background and his stand on the issues will propel him into office.  Even if his wife thinks he doesn’t have a chance.
