Independent Republican Candidate for Lieutenant Governor Denied Chance to Speak at GOP State Convention

May 31, 2012
For Immediate Release

Grade-­‐school playground politics alleged

Tacoma, WA – May 31, 2012 – The Washington State Republican Party central leadership committee has voted not to allow State Representative Glenn Anderson, (R-­‐Fall City) to address the Republican state convention in Tacoma along with other Republicans running for statewide office.

Rep. Anderson has filed as an Independent Republican to challenge 16-­‐year incumbent Democrat Brad Owen for the Office of Lieutenant Governor.

“It’s truly unfortunate, at a time when the public is giving our Washington State Republican Party a strong second look, that they would come to such a decision. Voters are seeking qualified candidates that are inclusive and who understand their real concerns regarding the future of our state and their families. Grade-­‐school playground politics about who is pure enough for the club is not what voters are interested in,” said Anderson.

Republican state Rep. Glenn Anderson made it official. He’s running for lieutenant governor in a bid to break Democratic incumbent Brad Owen’s four-term hold on the office.

Republican Bill Finkbeiner, who is a former Senate majority leader from Kirkland, announced last month he is running. Also in the race is a less-well-known Party of Commons candidate, Clifford Mark Greene of Bellevue.

In his announcement, Anderson asks: “The current Lieutenant Governor has now served 16 consecutive years, and is seeking re-election to a fifth term. What will the citizens of the state get in the next four years that they failed to achieve in the last 16 from the incumbent?”

And the Fall City resident goes on to say:

The Glenn Anderson 2012 campaign will focus on re-energizing the Lieutenant Governor’s office as a force for thoughtful independent thinking and advocacy in solving the problems facing our state. “When travelling around our state the number-one concern I hear from citizens is their frustration. They say ‘How do we restart our future and what are we trying to achieve?’ In this economy, we all struggle with economic and personal challenges. I’m going to try to change that,” Says Anderson. “That means really challenging Olympia to break the business-as-usual attitude. But it also means challenging voters on what it takes to deliver a prosperous future. Are we going to build and own our future? Or, will we merely allow Olympia to argue as it just happens?”
