Here is evidence that it pays to file early. All four Republican candidates were featured this week in the Owen County News-Herald , in the order of their filing date. My photo, bio and quotes appeared on the front page, while everyone else was buried on the back. Editor Mollie Haines dipped into my lengthy backgrounder on my website. Some of the other candidates don’t even have a website! I work hard at showing where I’ve been, what I’m doing and what I’ve heard from the citizens of the District. Thank you web designer extraordinaire Tammy Howard of 5 Mile Media for your outstanding work.
