Update from the Tye for Thurston Campaign!

On the move!
Don’t blink, or you’ll miss Tye! It seems he’s everywhere these days. He’s working hard for you to move our County Commission back into the hands of Democrats.

He recently attended the Family Support Center fundraiser in Olympia, the ROOF (Rochester Organization of Families) fundraiser, the Thurston County Volunteer Legal Services fundraiser, a fund-raising brunch for Thurston County Auditor Mary Hall, the Gate School plant sale in Rochester, the Pierce County League of Women Voters forum on homelessness, and candidate endorsement interviews with Thurston County Democratic Women and the Washington Education Association-Chinook.

In his spare time, he’s knocking on doors in the 3rd District to connect with voters and learn about their concerns.

How you can help Tye!
In May and early June we need people to make calls for Tye. The calls will be to strong Democrats in District 3 to tell them about Tye’s candidacy. You can direct them to his website, ask if they’d like a yard sign or if they would consider hosting a coffee with their neighbors and invite Tye to speak. We’ll provide you with a phone script and call list.

For the parade and fair season, we’re looking for volunteers to walk with him in parades and flip burgers at the Thurston County Democrats’ Burger Booth.

Please respond to the campaign at tyeforthurston@gmail.com if these
tasks appeal to you. Remember, Tye needs your help to win this election!

Tye’s Kickoff

Campaign Kickoff a Rousing Success!

The excitement and blue wave of enthusiasm from our campaign kickoff party at the Olympia Woman’s Club are still reverberating! More than 100 of you showed up to wish me well. I’m touched, and grateful for your support.

We couldn’t keep up with the demand for yard signs. Every sign we had available – more than 70 in all – went home with our guests! If you didn’t get a sign and want one, please email us through this contact form at https://tyeforthurston.com/help-elect-tye.

A big thanks to all the volunteers who helped with the event and my Oly Mountain Boys bandmates for their musical contributions. Campaigning is hard work, but your encouragement and generosity inspire me to charge ahead full steam!
