Abuse of power by Commissioner Gary Edwards
“Thurston County Commissioner Gary Edwards sought private social security information from the county Human Resources department about a candidate running for a seat on the commission. The full story is in the 9/20/20 Olympian: “Thurston commissioner asked for candidate’s private information from county HR department.”
“As the former head of the Sheriff’s Office, Edwards is either a slow learner or not telling the truth when he claimed he did not know that was protected information. Edwards said, “I didn’t know that until I went and asked.”
Edwards went on to add that he thought others were trying to cause him trouble. He was trying to dox a political candidate and now he wants us to believe he is the victim?
I urge you to vote Edwards out and elect Michael Steadman, a former Marine and an honest person.
