1. Jackie Jo Reid has decided to withdraw from the race for Thurston County Commissioner.
Reid announced on May 28:
“It is with much contemplation that I have decided to withdraw from the race for Thurston County Commissioner, 2008. My support for this position now goes to Sandra Romero who shares my
environmental vision for Thurston County.
During my tenure as an elected Precinct Committee Officer with the Democratic Party, I have come to realize how important the role of PCO is in local politics, and that I can be more effective there.
This is a time to stand together with our fellow Democrats to show our strength, our support, and our solidarity…
Thank you for all of your support.”
