As Hans Zeiger’s grandmother, I would like to come to his defense.

When he was just a little boy, I took him to visit our state Capitol in Olympia. When we toured it with the docent, he knew as much as she did about its history. When he signed his name in their guest register, he wrote, “I’ll be back!”

Later he went back to the Capitol as a page and was reportedly the best page they have ever had. He has always been an avid reader and writer. His ideas have changed through the years, and he has learned much. He is an avid Christian.

In time, I know he will be a great statesman and a credit to our country. He is dedicated, a smart leader and a very loving person. I feel he will never be a backbiting politician. He is the perfect candidate for the 25th Legislative District, state representative, Position No. 2. His ideas are fresh, patriotic and knowledgeable, and he loves our country with all of his heart.

I know that as an Eagle Scout, he will follow the Scout Promise:

On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times,
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.
