Departing lawmaker Glenn Anderson thanks constituents
May 8, 2012
State Rep. Glenn Anderson thanked constituents for sharing ideas and participating in state government, as the longtime lawmaker prepares to depart the House of Representatives.
The message to constituents in Issaquah and the 5th Legislative District came after the Fall City Republican completed a final session as lawmaker for the district. Anderson is a candidate for lieutenant governor.
State election rules require Anderson to stop sending email updates to constituents May 12 and, after June 30, he can no longer initiate constituent communications through emails and letters.
“We tackled a lot of little things and a few big things, and all were very much worth the time working with you,” he said in a legislative update emailed to constituents May 3.
Anderson is in a crowded field to fill the No. 2 job in state government. Incumbent Lt. Gov. Brad Owen, a Democrat, also faces challenges from former GOP state Sen. Bill Finkbeiner and independent candidate Mark Greene, a Newcastle resident.
In January, Chad Magendanz, a Republican and the Issaquah School Board president, entered the race to succeed Anderson in the House. The filing deadline for candidates is May 18.
