  • COURIER ENDORSEMENT: For Evergreen, Doyle is the right HD25 pick

    House District 25, with Evergreen and Conifer at its center, has long been distinguished by distinguished representatives at the state Capitol.

    From John Witwer to his son Rob, and to the current incumbent, Cheri Gerou, our district has enjoyed more than a decade of dedicated, thoughtful and reasoned representation in the state House.

    But while the Witwers and Gerou are Republicans, the Courier would like to strongly recommend that voters in the November election send Democrat Janet Doyle of Evergreen to the legislature.
