Twin Falls County Democrats held their annual picnic on July 26 at beautiful Centennial Park in the Snake River Canyon. Over 80 people attended the event, including Larry LaRocco. LaRocco had spent the earlier part of the day at the airshow in Twin Falls. James Ruchti legislator from Bannock (district 29), presented Twin Falls County Democrats with a check for $600. He commended the efforts the committee has made in the last year. Local candidates from legislative district 23, Mike Ihler, Bill Chisholm, and Peter Rickards attended. Peter had donned a t-shirt depicting his arrest in Glenns Ferry. Also in attendance: Scott McClure candidate from district 26 and Dave Maestas. Strings Attached played, courtesy of Mike McCarthy.
