Joe Tanner campaign kick-off event later this month

Joe Tanner, a former legislator and the first president of the Columbia River Economic Development Council, has announced that he will campaign full-time for Tom Mielke‘s position on the Clark County Commission. Tanner plans to emphasize job creation. Early in his career, Tanner represented northern Clark County in the State Legislature, where he worked to expand higher education opportunities, eliminate sales tax on manufacturing plants and equipment, and establish a statewide economic development task force. In 1989, Tanner returned to the private sector and served as an officer of three corporations. Tanner and his wife, Sharyn, have lived in Clark County for 31 years and have three grown children.

Tanner will formally kick off his campaign at an event in late March. For more details, contact campaign manager Nick Ande at 360-823-6300.
