No new county charter says commissioner Blake

April 3rd, 2015 by Ken

Thurston County Commissioner Bud Blake says he will not support a freeholder’s election to draft a new county charter.

Blake made those comments while speaking to the Hawks Prairie Rotary Club on Friday.

Blake said things are working well and Thurston County would have no need to look at a new county charter until 2022 – – when Blake said the county would have more than 300,000 residents.

Blake said a new county charter as proposed by the Better Thurston movement, would destabilize county government,  be too expensive, create another layer of government and cause grief for county residents.

The new county commissioner said that Southern Thurston County would be better served by increased efforts to bring business to the area.
