GOP women host Sam Reed for award, speech

Secretary of State Sam Reed is scheduled to speak about his long history in the politics of Thurston County on Tuesday, May 10, during the monthly lunch meeting of the Thurston County Republican Women's Club. He also is receiving a life-time achievement award from the Thurston Republican Party.

The event is at 11:30 a.m. at Hawks Prairie Restaurant in Lacey and open to the public. County Republican chairman John O'Callaghan is to formally present Reed with the life-time achievement award. It had been announced in February at the party’s local Lincoln Day dinner, but Reed was in Washington, D.C., and missed it.

Reed is serving his third term as secretary of state after serving about two decades as Thurston County auditor. A link to his official biography is here.
