Farmer kicks off Port race

June 16th, 2015 by Ken

An impressive list of public officials took the podium Tuesday morning to help kickoff  Jerry Farmer’s race for the Olympia Port Commission.

Among those taking the stand were Secretary of State Kim Wyman, Thurston County Commissioner Bud Blake and former Lacey Mayor Graeme Sackrison.  (Note: a Republican, an Independent and a Democrat.)

Speaking before a group of about 50 supporters, Farmer said his entry into politics and the port race was just a continuation of his community involvement.

His primary emphasis will be on jobs, Farmer said, which is a key role for the port.    He also took  a shot at those who want to stop the port’s operations saying they represented just a small portion of the community.
