Doughnut hole group endorses Brad Peck

Franklin County District 1 Commissioner Brad Peck is endorsed by Citizens For Lifestyle Preservation, a group in the doughnut hole in west Pasco that is opposed to annexation.

The group's statement recognized Peck, who is seeking a second four-year term and is chairman of the commission, for having publicly declared that the approximately 4,000 residents in the Riverview Island area should have a right to vote before being annexed into the city of Pasco.

The grassroots community organization also credited Peck for having helped identify and end a 22-year-scheme in which a public works employee allegedly stole $1.8 million.
