Did you see PF’s post about Harlan Wells? The local government reporter was intrigued by Wells, who isn’t running for mayor after all – and also wondering if a new county commissioner will shake things up.
I was wondering if Jack Rowan, who ran against Wells, planned to toss his hat in the ring.
Today, Rowan told me he’d considered it, but he’s opting out in order to complete his chaplain studies. Good for you, Jack, and hurry back to Missoula.
In a short FB conversaion, though, Rowan also said he’s going to throw his support behind Jack Metcalf, if Metcalf does opt into the running. Do you remember Metcalf from the Justice of the Peace race?
Jack Rowan also said something funny about his endorsement, of sorts, of Jack Metcalf:
There is kinda’ weird satisfaction inherent in having another Jack claim the seat, if that is the way it all plays out. Plus, I really like Jack and agree with his approach.
Did you celebrate Christmas? Are you celebrating Hanukkah? Well, you’d best ring in 2017.
I was in Boise, Idaho, for Christmas, and am grateful for snow plow drivers. The picture is from a botanical garden in Boise that gets all lit up for the holidays … like some of us, perhaps.
