Fraser contemplates bid for Lt. Governor

September 29th, 2015 by Ken

22nd District State Senator Democrat Karen Fraser confirmed that she is thinking about running for Lieutenant Governor in 2016.   Her decision will be dependent on whether current Lieutenant Governor Democrat Brad Owen decides to seek re-election.

Fraser has previously held three other elective offices.   She was on the Lacey City Council (where she served as mayor), a Thurston County Commissioner, a state representative and is now the current state senator.   That’s an impressive list of elective offices.

But Fraser is not the local leader in the number of elective offices held.   That title goes to Mike Kreidler.

Kreidler served on the North Thurston School Board, as 22nd District State Representative, as 22nd District State Senator, in Congress as a Congressional Representative and currently as Washington State Insurance Commissioner.  That’s five different elective offices.

Judy Wilson has served in three different elective offices including Thurston County Commissioner, North Thurston School Board and currently as Lacey Fire Commissioner.

Several of our local elected officials have served in two different elective offices.

(Editors note:  If you know someone local who has held three or more elective offices – let me know.)
