    Many of the votes are easy for me. Some I have even contributed to. But i don’t get why I have no guidance for the state supreme court justices. A court that is effecting us in the county with their rulings. So I am not going to complete my ballot until you get bact to me.

    At our Sept Central Committee meeting – it was my recollection that we voted to endorse Duane Davidson – State Treasurer only – not Micheal Waite. How did Waite end up on our recommendations? I was on a trip during Oct – maybe something happened there to change that? gk

      No actually you have your dates wrong. We voted in July that Micheal Waite would not have the use of our Lynden Fair Booth.
      In September the State Committee voted to recommend both candidates with no prejudice hence a Republican will serve in the
      Treasurer’s office in the State of Washington doubling our state wide offices.

    Please specify which candidate is endorsed by the WA GOP for the 2016 General Election ballot – for the Superintendent of Public Instruction?

    The ballot lists only (2) voting options – Erin Jones or Chris Reykdal?

    The WA State online site list of candidates for this position lists (9) options?

    Nonetheless, which candidate on the official ballot of the (2) two above mentioned names does the GOP recommend? Briefly why?

    Thank you.

      We don’t “Endorse” any candidate that the state does not endorse at the state level. As a party, good sir, we cannot endorse or recommend either candidate as they hold no Republican values. Erin Jones is known to be the candidate of the WEA and Mr Reykdal is a progressive.

      As far as the 9 candidates; you are reading the Primary Election Pamphlet from the state. Being a former school board member I will not vote for either.
