Don’t forget to vote – your voice is more important than you realize! Ballots can be returned until 8PM tomorrow at any ballot drop box location!

The Affordable Housing Council of Olympia Master Builders has endorsed candidates in two races for the primary election. In both Mason and Thurston Counties, there are very important County Commissioner races with candidates who are clear choices to support home building and economic development. Those candidates are:

Thurston County - Bud Blake (Independent)
Bud is the incumbent and has fought for four years to protect land owners from the results of the federal listing of the Mazama Pocket Gopher as an endangered species and brought the county budget into balance by shifting to a biennial method while encouraging county-wide growth.

Mason County - Sharon Trask (Republican)
Sharon currently works as a Legislative Assistance to a member of leadership in the State House of Representatives. She wants to focus on recruiting employers to Mason County and providing the proper tools to first responders. Her understanding of political decision making will let her hit the ground running to grow Mason County.

If you have any questions about where to return your ballot or how to vote, call your local auditor’s office at 360.786.5408 (Thurston County) or 360-427-9670 ext. 470 (Mason County). If you have questions about ANY candidates or issues, contract our Government Affairs Director, Erin Hall, at 360-754-0912 or erin@omb.org .
