Secretary of State offers endorsement | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

Kitsap County Auditor Walt Washington and I enthusiastically support Kim Wyman for Secretary of State.

As your Secretary of State for the past 12 years, I fully understand the qualities needed to serve successfully in that position.

It’s not a matter of political party preference. Instead, it’s the ability to rise above party and oversee elections and the other office functions in a fair, non-partisan way.  Kim Wyman has demonstrated that quality for 12 years as the Thurston County Auditor. She is endorsed by 66 present and former County Auditors, including 24 Democrats.

Kim Wyman would bring remarkable breadth and depth of knowledge and professional experience to the position. She has been administering elections and historical records for 21 years.

Kim Wyman is the candidate with true vision for the future. She was selected by the PEW Foundation to be the local government official to serve on a task force on voter registration modernization.

Kim Wyman has received strong endorsements from every endorsing newspaper in the state.

Please join Walt Washington and me in voting for Kim Wyman for Secretary of State.
