This is my initial experience announcing legislative candidates. When I took the position of county chair, not quite a year ago, I thought we were another election cycle away from having a strong slate of candidates. Subsequent events have proven me wrong. Not only do we have strong candidates for this race, there is strong support coming from our 53 Neighborhood Leaders. We are planning on working diligently for all our Democratic candidates but are especially proud to have the following candidates for state legislature.
Carolyn Elexpuru has filed for State Representative in Legislative 24, position B against Sharon Block. Carolyn is a former Gooding county commissioner.
In Legislative District #23, Bill Chisholm has filed for state senator. Peter Rickards has filed for state representative Position A, and Mike Ihler for State representative position B.
Further, our Jerome county neighbor Scott McClure is filing for state senator in legislative district 26.
