We Believe It’s Time for a Change in Legislative Leadership.
WE have the leaders of the House and Senate believing they can block your elected Senator and Representative from taking care of the interests of your district by blocking bills from being heard. They also think that spending your tax dollars when there is a surplus is better than cutting your taxes.
Tell your legislator it’s time for a change.
District 11 – Zach Brooks for Senator, Josh Gibbons for House Seat A and Tammy Nichols for House Seat B
District 12 – Todd Lakey for Senator
District 13 – Brent Crane for House Seat A and Lori Shewmaker for House Seat B
District 14 – Todd Hatfield for Senator, Gayann DeMourdaunt for House Seat B
District 15 – 16 – 17 – 18 – 19
District 20 – Joe Palmer House Seat A and James Holtzclaw House Seat B
District 21 – Cliff Bayer for Senator, Steven Harris House Seat A and Thomas E. “Tom” Daley House Seat B
District 22 – Lori Den Hartog for Senator, John Vander Woude House Seat A and Jason Monks for House Seat B
District 23 – Christy Zito House Seat A
As you may note we skipped a number of races where we felt the choice was really a “non-choice”, so we urge you to either write in a person or just skip it. Either response will send a message.
For Districts 15-19 we will cover those in detail in our fall edition.
District 11 has been in a need of change for a long time, and with Perry gone this is the perfect time to clean house. It is our recommendation that District 11 retire Patti Anne Lodge and Scott Syme during this elections cycle. While we respect your right to vote for the candidate of your choice, continuing to send these two back to the Legislature only hurts the rest of Idaho.
You have a great candidate In Zach Brooks, and Josh Gibbons will make an excellent replacement for Scott Syme. Lodge and Syme need to go.
As for District 20 we skipped the Senate seat since leadership is a issue, and Chuck Winder is part of the problem.
District 23 certainly deserves better than Burt Brackett, and we believe that its time for him to go. Furthermore, Megan Blanksma appears to be cut from the same cloth as Kelley Packer and Christy Perry – voting with them to fund planned Parenthood – and she is not much better on other issues. For this and other reasons not listed here, we believe that Blanksma should consider switching parties!
