Observer Corps

The Thurston League has revived its Observer Corps. A local League Observer is the “eyes and ears” of the League, learning how government works and about issues that are or may become items for local study and action. A consistent League presence at these meetings can add to the League's visibility and credibility. Observers do not speak for the League but attend local governmental meetings to listen, learn and to make factual reports of the proceedings. Currently, observers are attending/will be attending meetings of the Thurston County Commissioners, the Olympia, Lacey and Tumwater City Councils and the Port of Olympia. If you are interested in being a League Observer, please contact Pat Dickason at
