Longtime Republican and community activist Bob Brunjes has been selected for a third term as chairman of the 5th Legislative District GOP.
The organization represents the GOP in the 5th District. Brunjes oversees 182 precinct committee officers throughout the district.
The district stretches from Issaquah to Snoqualmie Pass, and from Sammamish to Maple Valley. The district is unique in Western Washington for being represented entirely by Republicans.
King County GOP Chairwoman Lori Sotelo described him as “a tenacious professional.”
Brunjes is a recognized statewide as a Republican spokesperson. He led the successful re-election efforts of state Reps. Glenn Anderson and Jay Rodne in November. Brunjes also promoted the local campaigns of Congressman Dave Reichert and King County Council members Kathy Lambert and Reagan Dunn.
“We still have plenty of work to do. In spite of the drastic downturn in the economy, the Legislature and governor ignored the effects on regular people outside of Olympia,” Brunjes said. “We need to get Washington back on track with a sensible budget and no new taxes.”
