This week we begin interviewing candidates running for the state House seat that Representative Matt Shea is vacating in the Fourth Legislative District. Technically it’s an open seat, but because of some late maneuvering during candidate filing week, an incumbent, Representative Bob McCaslin, is running for the seat.

One of the candidates in the race is Republican Mike Conrad. Conrad is the CEO of The Savory Butcher, a Post Falls company that sells bulk meat products that its customers order and pick up. The company operates not just in this area, but in several states around the country. We asked Conrad why he’s running for the legislature.

Tomorrow [Tuesday] we’ll hear from one of his opponents, Democrat Lori Feagan.
