Kim Wyman deserves the support of Pierce County voters for secretary of state. I know Kim Wyman well, trust her and strongly endorse her.

The next secretary of sate must have the knowledge and heft of experience to run one of the nation’s most highly regarded elections offices. She also must win the trust of all Washingtonians, regardless of party affiliation, that in a close call, politics won’t come into play.

Wyman has a 21-year record of nonpartisanship, experience and professionalism. As Thurston County auditor, she has inspired confidence in both Democrats and Republicans – winning her last election with a whopping 67 percent.

Present and former county auditors know the office best. Sixty-six of them – including 24 Democrats – endorse and support Wyman. She is the candidate who will clearly follow in a long tradition of Washington secretaries of state looking to serve the best interests of voters.

Please join me in voting for Kim Wyman for evenhanded competence and integrity in the office of secretary of state.

(Reed is the current secretary of state.)
