So, what do we know about this guy? Not a bunch.
The Thurston County Republicans announced his kick-off in a few weeks, implying his has the "right hands" to run the county. Of course, winning one-third of the commission won't exactly mean Pat's in charge, but that is just simple math.
Here's the description from his meetup page for his kick-off:
Pat Beehler is a long-time resident of Thurston County, and is an established community leader. He will bring balance to the County Commission with his quiet and respectful style of leadership. If you don't know Pat, come to the breakfast and learn about his plan to win!
For work, Pat's the "director of survey" locally for WHPacific, an architecture firm.
His campaign treasurer is a lobbyist at the legislature, Linda Matson.
Here's his facebook profile, oddly linked to from his campaign site. Nothing campaign related there, but he seemed to have signed up for it just as soon as he decided to run. It may surprise you, but after checking I have no friends in common with Pat. One of his friends seems to be wearing a cape though.
And, he's a Rotarian.
