As former Thurston County auditors, we encourage everyone who voted for us to vote for Gary Alexander. We want to see our proud legacy of fair, accurate, non-partisan elections and financial operations continued.
We both were fortunate to have Alexander as our deputy county auditor of finance. He provided outstanding leadership not only for the office but also for the entire county government.
For 13 years, Alexander was a key member of our office leadership teams. He provided invaluable support for the elections, licensing and recording divisions. This year, he has proved his exceptional ability to lead the whole office.
Compared with his opponent’s narrow experience in one section of the Pierce County auditor’s office, Alexander has vastly broader and deeper professional experience.
Most important, Alexander is the candidate who has proved his ability to conduct himself in bipartisan fashion.
We encourage voters to look at the endorsements on their respective websites. Alexander has strong support from Republicans, Democrats and independents. His opponent’s support is narrowly, blatantly partisan. As the chief elections and finance officer, it is critically important for the auditor to not be beholden to one political party.
