Sandy Jamison announces bid to run for Whitman Co. Auditor
COLFAX, WA —
Now that the 2017 election season is over, it’s time for the 2018 midterm elections and local races are starting to pick up momentum already. A few candidates have announced their intentions to run. One of the seats available is the Whitman County Auditor.
Current Whitman County Auditor Eunice Coker said that she won’t be seeking re-election this upcoming fall. That opens the door for Garfield resident Sandy Jamison. Jamison announced her candidacy for Whitman County Auditor on January seventh. She feels she would be a good fit for the position because of her career with many bio-tech and manufacturing start-ups.
In office, Jamison’s goal is to maintain a positive view of the auditor’s office, especially after the 2017 election season. Another goal is to close the gap between the auditor’s office and cities and towns within the county. Jamison explained, “My goal is to develop a raport with those folks, so that they feel comfortable establishing policy with us, and so that we can hear both sides of an equation?”
Jamison earned a bachelors and masters at WSU in business administration, and is a licensed notary in the state of Washington. Jamison is not the only person announcing their candidacy. In Latah County, former Moscow city councilor Tony Johnson announced his candidacy for Latah County Commissioner. Kathie LaFortune also announced her candidacy for a Latah County Commissioner seat. Moscow Food Co-op president Laurene Johnson is running for the Idaho State House as well.
