Dear Editor:

I’m not much for politics, but I feel compelled to tell folks of my support for Dennis Fuller for County Commissioner.

Dennis has shown his interest in the youth of our region since returning to Orofino 20 years ago. He was a long-time and respected sports official and proved his ability to enforce the rules fairly and always with an eye to sportsmanship. Since retiring from the field, Dennis has been Orofino High School’s “go to” clock and scoreboard operator for football, basketball and baseball.

What amazes me most about Dennis is his concentration levels. If you think running the scoreboard and clock during a tense basketball game is easy, I invite you to try. How’d you like to keep the balls, strikes, outs, and score, announce the batter’s names and positions, and play music between innings of a four-hour double-header? Dennis has the skill and attention span to juggle it all and I’ve rarely seen him make a mistake.

Finally, I like Dennis. He is friendly and engaging and smart. I urge all my friends to vote for Dennis Fuller.

Earl Vicory
