Who are the candidates for state representative, seat 6A?
There is no incumbent for that office – although one advertises for “re-election” to that office. That is somewhat misleading to the citizens of Nez Perce and Lewis counties. It gives the impression of an incumbent.
We now have a choice between a shady politician and an honest person running for the office.
His name is Bob Blakey. …
I first met Bob about six or seven years ago when he was introduced to our local cowboy action shooting club. …
He learned well, and is now an active and top shooter in our club as well as the Dayton, Wash., group. He is a member of the Lewiston Pistol Club and the National Rifle Association. …
He ran for a seat on the city council and won. He worked tirelessly with the city and county in bringing an end to the Urban Renewal Agency lawsuit, successfully saving the taxpayers a bundle of money.
He will relinquish his city council seat when elected to the state House of Representatives, seat 6A.
For these reasons, I and my fellow cowboy shootists urge you to vote for Blakey on Nov. 8. To use a phrase from our cowboy group, “He’s a good man to ride the river with.”
