AM: Malek Announces For Legislature

It appears Deputy Prosecutor Luke Malek and Reagan Republicans leader Jeff Ward are having an intense conversation after Malek's announcement that he will seek retiring Rep. Marge Chadderdon's House District 4A seat. HucksOnline story here. And: CdA Press story here.

Question: You be the fly on the wall. What is Jeff saying to Luke? Or vice versa?

Malek To Seek Chadderdon’s 4A Seat

Luke Malek announced today that he will be running for the Idaho State House of Representatives, Legislative District 4A.  Luke Malek is a Kootenai County native, and an active member of the community. Malek says his focus will be to usher economic prosperity by limiting government and promoting local control.  “Government has decided that it needs to try and muscle its way into every aspect of our lives, and that needs to change,” he said.  “It will be the hard-working people of Idaho and our businesses that bring jobs back to our state, but the government needs to step out of the way and allow that to happen.” Marge Chadderdon, who currently holds seat 4A and is retiring after the 2012 session, is endorsing Malek/Luke Malek press release.

Chadderdon Faces Cancer Surgery

Update: Rep. Marge Chadderdon, R-Coeur d'Alene, will miss the first three weeks of the legislative session for cancer surgery, and her daughter, Julie, will fill in for her. “The first three weeks are the rules, which I can follow somewhat on the computer,” Chadderdon said today. She'll go in for surgery at Kootenai Medical Center on Friday, and hopes to come to Boise and pick back up her legislative duties a few weeks later even if she has to undergo chemotherapy; she's already discussed possible arrangements with her doctor. “We'll kind of play it by ear,” she said. “It could be four to five months of chemo. It might not bother me. Some people, they don't get sick or anything”/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.
