2014 Legislative Session Wrap-Up
The Idaho Legislature adjourned its 2014 Session on March 21. There was plenty of debate and a great deal of cooperation to get things done for Idaho. I want to thank you for allowing me to serve you this term in the Idaho House of Representatives. It is truly an honor and a privilege.
You will hear much negative conversation about Idaho’s economy and its future. I do not share that view. The economy continues to grow and my optimism for Idaho’s future grows as well.
I am running for re-election as your Representative and can still use the support you have given me over the past two years. I face a tough challenge in the General Election, but I am the ONLY candidate who brings to the table the right combination of relevant public and private-sector business background AND the necessary legislative experience to fulfill the role of your Representative for District 6.
I take my responsibility as your Representative very seriously, and I appreciate hearing from you. Please give me the benefit of your opinions, which allows me to serve you and our communities.
We accomplished much this Session. I want to summarize some of the good news so that you can spread the word to your friends and neighbors. Continue reading
