Banker runs for county treasurer

March 24th, 2010 by Ken

Tom Nelson, vice president of Thurston First Bank, has announced his candidacy for Thurston County Treasurer.   Nelson will run as a Republican.

In making the announcement Nelson said he plans to use his education and business knowledge to bring innovation and efficiency to the financial sector of our local government.

Nelson is the son of Tom Nelson, a member of the Lacey City Council currently serving the council as mayor.

Robin Hunt continues as county treasurer while the Democratic Party and the Thurston County Commissioners determine what they’re going to do and which Democrat they’ll select to replace her.

Whichever person is ultimately selected will have to run for election this November.
