Tye Menser will bring service, stewardship, and solutions to the County Commission.
As your County Commissioner, I will…
Restore our financial health. Just two years ago, we were blessed with a budget surplus. Since then, commissioners have been spending through our rainy-day fund. This mismanagement cripples the county’s ability to provide you essential services, like fast law-enforcement response. I will bring financial responsibility back to Thurston County!
Promote efficiency and solve problems. Thurston County often works at cross-purposes with cities on key issues like housing and business development. I will ensure the county works efficiently with our communities on behalf of all residents.
Solve the pocket gopher problem. The endangered Mazama pocket gopher has been a thorn in the side of property owners for years. Under my opponent’s leadership, commissioners dragged out a losing battle with the federal government over creating a conservation plan. I will see that a workable gopher plan finally gets done and solves this problem forever!
