Republican in Senate race

Galie to seek Davis' post

Retired attorney Hercules V. "Hec" Galie of Sierra Vista has announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for the State Senate from District 9.

The seat now is held by Stephen A. Davis of Tucson, who recently switched his political affiliation from Republican to independent. Davis' name will appear on the Nov. 2 general election ballot.

Democrat John J. Hutton of Sierra Vista and Wayne Tangye of Tubac will be on their party's ticket in the Sept. 7 primary election.

Galie, 62, said he is running because he strongly feels the District 9 seat should be filled by a Republican. "I feel I can render a service to the Republican party and the people of this state," he said.

While he hasn't developed a campaign platform, Galie said he considers a continued policy of balanced budgets for state government to be a key issue in this election.

A deficit budget would have an adverse impact on Arizona's economy, he said.

Galie retired in 1972 after 30 years of federal government work in civil service and U.S. Air Force reserves positions. He said that experience equips him to serve in the legislature.

He was an attorney for the Federal Aviation Administration, the U.S. Immigration Service and the U.S. Department of Defense. Since coming to Arizona, he has worked as a tax and financial consultant.

A native of New York, Galie attended New York University and Queens College and received his law degree from St. John's University. He is a veteran of World War II.

District 9 covers parts of Pima, Santa Cruz and Cochise counties, running from South- east Tucson to the Mexican border.
