‘I wasn’t trying to duck the vote’

OK, why did Rep. Jim Clark, R-Hayden Lake, disappear shortly before the debate and vote on the BSU Broncos resolution in the House today? It turns out he had two people waiting for him – a senator and a staffer for the governor – to talk about legislation regarding state anti-drug efforts, including a new office of drug control policy (now known as the drug czar). “I wasn’t trying to duck the vote,” said Clark, who’s the new House Judiciary Committee chairman. “I just didn’t want to keep those two guys waiting on me – especially since I’m trying to have a good working relationship with the governor’s office.”
