In response to recent letters by Dan Suter and Lenny Perkins regarding a suitable replacement for U.S. Rep. Doc Hastings.
I cannot disagree with any of their criteria, but I think I may know the only candidate that can fulfill all of the suggested character qualities, including a steadfast love of a higher power.
He has four legs, sleeps on the foot of my bed every night, and his higher power is me. I'm the one who fills his dish with dog food every day.
On behalf of my shih-tzu Max, he respectfully declines to run -- unless it's to chase his brother, Buddy.
GARY HENNE, Kennewick
