ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) — The chairman of the Washington County Democratic Party is challenging Republican House Speaker Dave Clark for his seat in the Legislature.

Cyril Noble filed for office on Friday. Noble said he had been asking candidates to challenge Republicans for years and felt it was finally time to run himself.

Noble is a retired manager and legislative union officer for Boeing.

Clark won his last election with 73 percent of the vote in 2008.

Well, if I ever find another job, my first donation of the season goes to Cyril. I’ve known him for years and can think of few people in Southern Utah who would do a better job in the Utah Legislature.
