Gov’s new spokesman

Aaron Toso, a Tacoma-based political consultant, is Gov. Chris Gregoire’s new press secretary. He starts Dec. 10.

The ed board met Toso when he worked with advocates of payday lending reform during the 2007 legislative session, crossing swords with South Tacoma’s state Rep. Steve Kirby, Democratic chair of the House financial institutions committee. To our disappointment, no bill came out of Kirby’s committee

Toso joined the governmental affairs section of the Tacoma law firm Gordon Thomas Honeywell earlier this year and soon afterward moved from Seattle to Tacoma’s North End. He also served as spokesman for the unsuccessful Yes on Roads & Transit campaign this fall. See Toso’s bio at Gordon Thomas here.

Gregoire’s previous press secretary, Holly Armstrong, resigned in September to move to Denver.
