Gary Alexander has been in public service in Thurston County since his days as Port of Olympia commissioner in the 1990s, leading to his service as a representative in the Legislature ever since. In this capacity, he is the senior financial member on the House budget committee, and also doubled in this financial capacity as deputy auditor under Sam Reed and Kim Wyman, (who both endorse him) leading to his appointed position as Thurston County auditor now.
In his various positions Alexander has been known to be a bridge working with both sides of the aisle, and continues in that respect now. He has not resorted to negative campaigning, a trait desired and respected in Thurston. We need to continue the heritage of a fair election system as well as strong financial leadership in our county.
