Len Crosby: Is He In Or Is He Out?

Yesterday, I hinted that a Post Falls businessman was about to jump into the House District 3B race for the seat now held by retiring state Rep. Frank Henderson, R-Post Falls. Banker Len Crosby was the individual I had in mind. After I hinted at the prospect, a well-connected individual called to assure me that Len was noncommittal at best. However, I keep hearing from other circles that he's in. So, this morning, I called Len who's on vacation in Hawaii. He said he will announce his decision in a few days -- and considers it an honor to be asked to try to fill Henderson's shoes and continue to work on issues that the 91YO representative has set in motion. My guess at this point -- and it's only a guess -- is that Len's in. If Len decides to run, he'll join Reagan Republican leader Jeff Ward, who has also announced for the position. Jeff Tyler and Sen. Bob Nonini's wife, Cathyanne, are also rumored to be considering the post. Stay tuned.
