Fuller joins commission and makes comeback into politics

CLARKSTON, WA - Asotin County Commissioner-elect Jim Fuller will take the district 2 seat over his opponent Richard Eggleston, making a comeback into political office.

Fuller served as commissioner 12 years ago for two terms. He said he's stayed involved in local government, by staying apprised of the important issues such as the budget. He's not counting his chickens before they hatch though, as he said he's going to wait for the final ballot count which is expected at 5 p.m. Friday.

"If it holds true with the way it is I am ecstatic, very excited to work with Jim Jeffords and Brian Shinn and work for the people," said Fuller.

Fuller's term will start in January of next year, but he expects to pop in over the next couple of months for a smoother transition back into office.
