District 13 race to incumbent

District 13 voters should return Jerry McPeak to the state House. McPeak has a broad base of support because of his more than 25 years in education at Connors State College in Warner. He is also a businessman, and he has served in the state House for two terms.

McPeak’s opposition, Debbie Lienhart, has not run an aggressive campaign.

While running a lively, effective campaign is not a sure sign of an effective legislator, it does show a desire to work hard and take that job seriously.

But endorsing McPeak is not a matter of not endorsing his opposition. He is a personable man with a good knowledge of state government and long public service.
