Pictures from the Joint 9th Legislative District PCO Meeting Today
Me with Washington State Republican Party Chairman Luke Esser
The big winner today, Joe Schmick of Colfax.
#2 Candidate Tedd Nealey
A very happy Michael Echanove. I was so glad for Michael (even though his last name kept getting butchered.) He truly deserves to be among the final three. I voted for him on every ballot after Joe was selected.
Former 9th District State Representative Don Cox (right) speaking with Luke Esser.
Some shots of the crowd. You can see my laptop in the first shot. I was sitting beside Whitman County Auditor Eunice Coker (third row back in the red jacket.) The PCOs all sat together, with guests and non-PCO candidates off to the side. Between ballots, I would go to the back wall by the windows to chat and joke with Whitman County Commissioner Michael Largent.
I wished I had gotten a picture of Whitman County Gazette reporter Joe Smillie. Joe looked very natty sporting a houndstooth fedora. I told him all he needed was a press pass sticking out of the band.
