“Let’s Get Thurston Moving Again – Innovation, Inclusion and Infrastructure”
- Editor’s note: The Seattle Times Editorial Board reported about Thurston County Commissioner Gary Edwards a year ago in a story titled, “Divisive issues no excuse for ‘revolution’ talk from elected officials.”

- I have watched Michael Steadman’s actions on the Lacey City Council for many years and support him as the right candidate at the right time for Thurston County’s Commission.
- I proudly endorse Michael Steadman.

greater if the people of our county realize that the only reason
Edwards runs as an independent is that he can’t win this county as a
