Griffey Releases Statement on Endorsement

Rep. Dan Griffey, R-35Dan Griffey has released the following statement regarding a recent news release which inaccurately states the State Representative endorses:

“I became aware as I was reading it, that my name and position was used to endorse the incumbent for County Commissioner- Randy Neatherlin. I was not asked by the candidate and I have contacted him regarding this. I have stated in the past and I will continue to state that I support our County Commissioners, our Sheriff and other elected officials. I am however not endorsing a candidate at this time, in the County Commissioner race for District 1. I hope this clears up any confusion.”

  1. The Committee to Re-elect Randy Neatherlin has released a statement in response to Dan Griffey’s statement Sunday on his endorsement of the candidate for Mason County Commissioner. The following is from Dr. Brian Petersen:

    “Representative Griffey spoke on two different occasions to two different representatives of the Randy Neatherlin campaign, one of which was myself. Mr. Griffey clearly offered his endorsement for the Commissioner’s re-election. We understand the pressure Representative Griffey must be feeling from those close to him, including direct threats from the former Mason County Republican Chair. That pressure has obviously taken a toll on Mr. Griffey in the days since he offered his endorsement. That’s unfortunate but we wish him all the best going forward.

    The Neatherlin Campaign will continue to celebrate the support from the additional 34 elected officials who continue to emphatically champion our commissioner’s tremendous work in the community. They stand by their endorsements and remain firmly behind his re-election effort.”
