Seaquist Richards to make another run for 26th District representative seat

Note: My apologies to both Doug Richards and Larry Seaquist. The headline on an earlier version of this blog post was inaccurate (see above).

Doug Richards, a battalion chief with South Kitsap Fire and Rescue, announced Thursday he will run in 2012 for the 26th Legislative District seat held by Rep. Larry Seaquist, D-Gig Harbor.
Richards, an Olalla resident, ran against Seaquist in 2010, earning 47 percent of the vote to Seaquist’s 53 percent.
“I was honored to receive so much support and help during the last election cycle that saw us come within 2,400 votes of a victory,” Richards said.
He vowed to be a strong advocate for jobs, education and fiscal discipline.
Seaquist, now in his third term, has not indicated his intentions for the 2012 election announced in January he will run for re-election.
The 26th District takes in parts of north Pierce County, including Gig Harbor, and south-central Kitsap County, including Port Orchard and parts of Bremerton. Other legislators representing the district are Rep. Jan Angel, R-Port Orchard, and Sen. Derek Kilmer, D-Gig Harbor.
