Edna J. Fund
County Commissioner, District 1
Term: January 1, 2017 - December 31, 2020

Edna Fund is a 54-year resident of Lewis County who graduated from Onalaska High School, Centralia College, and St. Martin's University.

Edna's Dutch immigrant parents instilled in her hard work, frugality, and honesty. Having grown up on a farm, Edna works until the job gets done -- not an 8-to-5 work day. After completing a career that included team management of a $100 million annual budget, Edna has been heavily involved in the community as a Centralia City Councilor, Timberland Regional Library trustee, and Centralia Christian School Foundation member. Her concerns include high unemployment and loss of family wage jobs in Lewis County. She is also a strong advocate of transparency in government.

Edna is Lewis County's representative on the Chehalis River Basin Flood Authority. She is well versed on the challenges and opportunities in flood mitigation.
