When Sam Reed, who was Thurston County Auditor, was elected Secretary of State of Washington, the Thurston County Republican Party elected Kim Wyman, who was the Thurston County Election Manager in the Thurston County Auditor's office, to succeed Sam as Thurston County Auditor. I was part of that electoral body. We recognized Kim's capabilities and qualities.
I have known Kim Wyman for about 15 years. The first time I met Kim and heard her speak she impressed me. Year after year, as she held the positions of Thurston County Auditor from 2001 - 2013 and Washington State Secretary of State from 2013 to the present, I grow in admiration of her competency and abilities to fulfill her office.
Kim is a person of character. These character qualities make her an exemplary Secretary of State. Kim is open and honest. She is respectful of others and listens. She is trustworthy and has humility.
Kim is ready to serve the people of Washington State and continues to do it well. She has already proved that as Thurston County Auditor and Secretary of State.
I support Kim 100 percent — no reservations.
