Eye On Olympia

E WA does its part…

And Eastern Washington continues to do its share to field longshot candidates this year.

we've got local candidates for governor, lieutenant governor and secretary of state, along with a healthy crop of folks vying for one of those small brown desks on the House and Senate floor.

Among the statewide candidates:

-Medical Lake's John Aiken is running for governor for the second time, after losing the 2004 Republican primary to Dino Rossi. Aiken's platform includes reviving the timber industry, boosting home ownership, year-round schooling and a largely-unified curriculum statewide.
-Arlene Peck, a Constitution Party member and Spokane Valley retiree, is running for lieutenant governor.
-Marilyn Montgomery, a Spokane woman who's also a member of the Constitution Party, is running for secretary of state.
