– From Commission candidate District 1 Jim Cooper’s Facebook page, Saturday
“Earlier this evening I called John Hutchings and conceded the race for Thurston County Commissioner,” his post reads. “I am exceedingly proud that we ran a positive, issue oriented campaign, and I could not be more grateful to each and every one of you for your support, and for the roles you play in our community every day. This is a wonderful place we call home, and I will continue to stand side by side with you, working to protect our values. While this has been a tough election, the work continues. This is the greatest community I could ask for. Onward!”
