The 2012 elections have been a focal point on the television, newspaper and by word of mouth. Special attention has been devoted to the presidential election and the gubernatorial election. However, a candidate that hasn’t received enough focus but should be elected is Kim Wyman. She is the right individual to take on the task of Washington’s next secretary of state. The reason that she deserves to hold this office is her years of experience and her nonpartisan stance.
Kim Wyman has 20 years experience overseeing elections from serving in the office of Secretary of State Sam Reed and eleven years serving as Thurston County auditor. Kim Wyman is a Republican, but she has served as auditor in a county that votes overwhelmingly Democratic. Furthermore, Wyman has endorsements from 26 county auditors who are Democrat and the Democrat leaning Washington Education Association. By garnering support from officials and organizations on different positions across the political spectrum, Wyman has been able to make sure that political preferences stay outside the electoral process. She will make sure that all voters regardless of political affiliation will have access to fair and impartial elections.
Kathleen Drew has experience as a legislator, but lacks the expertise to hold this office. Kim Wyman has 20 years experience in this field and also directly oversaw eighty-three successful elections. Wyman’s experience is essential in holding office that is to monitor the electoral process and instill electoral confidence among all Washington voters.
