County commission race expands

March 24th, 2016 by Ken

Looks like their will be a primary election for Thurston County Commissioner in the District one seat being vacated by Cathy Wolfe.

Former Olympia School Board member Allen Miller has announced he will be a candidate for the job.    He joins former Tenino police chief John Hutchings, and current Olympia City Councilmember Jim Cooper in wanting the position.   Having three candidates in the race assures voters of a Primary ballot.

In the other commission seat, being vacated by Sandra Romero, only former Thurston County Sheriff Gary Edwards has announced an interest.

Filing week is May 16-20.   The Primary election is August 2, while the General election is November 8.
