Cooper will run for seat held by Wolfe
From The Olympian:
Olympia City Council member Jim Cooper announced Saturday that he'll make a bid for an open seat on the Thurston County Commission next year.
For weeks, there’s been speculation that the former Thurston County Democratic Party chairman would run for outgoing Commissioner Cathy Wolfe’s District 1 seat. Cooper said he made it official with an announcement during his 41st birthday party.
