Selah city councilmember running for State House seat
SELAH, Wash. - A local real estate developer and Selah city councilmember now says he is running for the state House of Representatives.
Jeremie Dufault announced his candidacy in a press release Monday, for David Taylor's seat in the 15th District of Washington, which covers much of the Yakima Valley.
Dufault, a Republican, is also a lawyer and a Major in the United States Army and has served in Kuwait and Afghanistan, according to a news release.
The Yakima native believes this district deserves conservative and effective representation in Olympia, saying "we need a state representative who not only reflects our values but who supports open and honest government and who will work with others to achieve great things."
Dufault, 39, lives in Selah with his wife and two young daughters. He is a graduate of A.C. Davis High School and attends St. Paul's Catholic church in Yakima.
