Rep. Gary Alexander unqualified for Auditor’s Office


Rep. Gary Alexander

You do have a choice!
VOTE AGAINST REP. GARY ALEXANDER FOR AUDITOR,
VOTE FOR MARY HALL!

VOTE AGAINST MAYOR RON HARDING RUNNING UNOPPOSED-
LEAVE HIS BOX UNCHECKED FOR A VOTE OF “NO-CONFIDENCE”!

Here are the facts:
1. During 2013, Rep. & Interim County Auditor Gary Alexander “double-dipped” with two tax payer-funded jobs, plus their benefits:
Thurston County Auditor $105,276
WA State Legislator $42,106
Total $147,382 plus benefits

During 2013, Alexander condoned another “double-dipper” in his office with the appointment as his Deputy Auditor of Yelm Mayor Ron Harding:
Thurston County Deputy Auditor, $72,000 +
Yelm Mayor $30,000
Total $102,000 plus benefits
These two employees received over a quarter of a million dollars in salaries & benefits in 2013!

As Rep. Sam Hunt [22nd District] said to Yelm residents gathered for a Mary Hall for Auditor Forum last Tuesday,
“Why is Yelm’s Mayor Ron Harding the highest paid mayor in Thurston County?”
[a salary that was approved by the Yelm City Council!]

2. Auditor Alexander’s office issued several critical findings by the WA State Auditor in his 2013 interim position:

Retired Washington State Treasurer Mike Murphy said of these findings:
“Audits are important because they provide accountability. So when I read recent reports of state audits of the Thurston County Auditors Office, I was very concerned. The person responsible for reporting was Gary Alexander.”

“This is not a D-vs.-R discussion. This is a matter of competence. Alexanders recent series of audit findings is totally unacceptable.

This is not the kind of fiscal responsibility that I want from my county auditor, and thats why I am voting for Mary Hall for Thurston County Auditor.”

3. Rep. Gary Alexander voted against every human rights bill, in contrast to the majority of voters:
2006 HB 2661 Expanding Jurisdiction of the Human Rights Commission (anti-bullying) 61-37 NO
2007 SB 5336 Domestic Partnerships 63-35 NO
2009 SB 5688 Anything but marriage 62-35 NO
2011 HB1267 Domestic Partners & Parentage 57-40 NO
2012 SB 6239 Marriage Equality 55-43 NO

Not only an opponent of the most basic civil rights for gays and lesbians, which was widely supported in Washington, in 2007 he even voted against a law affirming the state legal rights of those with disabilities a law that passed the Senate 46-2.

What kind of County Auditor will this man be who continually votes against basic human rights?

4. Rep. Alexander has been on the wrong side of state legislation by sponsoring these bills that:
1. would have suspended the Growth Management Act,
2. allowed school districts to opt-out of 180-day school years,
3. reduced minimum wage,
4. asked the federal government to let the state fail to maintain Medicaid programs,
as examples.

5. Rep. Alexander is a member of ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council.
Funded by the Koch Brothers, ALEC’s goal is to pass pre-written boilerplate legislation in all oft he states that would further their agenda that would be to the detriment to everyone except the 1%.

VOTE AGAINST REP. GARY ALEXANDER FOR AUDITOR,
VOTE FOR MARY HALL!

VOTE AGAINST MAYOR RON HARDING RUNNING UNOPPOSED-
LEAVE HIS BOX UNCHECKED FOR A VOTE OF “NO-CONFIDENCE”!
