Mary Whiteford is trying again to represent the 80th state House District, this time in a special election to fill a vacancy left by the expulsion of Cindy Gamrat.


Cindy Gamrat served in the state House for eight months, but in September she was expelled after a House report that she and now former Representative Todd Courser misused state resources to conceal their affair.
