For the record here is the column I wrote -- when just Craig Pridemore and Temple Lentz were in the running for the appointment. I asked both of them what they'd do if they didn't get the appointment. http://www.columbian.com/

Meanwhile, the other two Democrats vying for Stuart's position on the board, former County Commissioner and state Senator Craig Pridemore and Kelly Love Parker, president and chief executive of the Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce, said they would be unlikely to run campaigns unless they were first appointed to the seat.Gee.... this is a tough one.
Given his track record, if Lefty told me it was daylight outside I'd have to check.
On the other hand, Pridemore has obviously been feeling the heat from his rather stupid line in the rag that if he didn't get the appointment, he wouldn't run.
I can hear the tap-dancing now. Time to fire up some more popcorn!
