Former speaker supports Stennett

I am writing to encourage voters of District 25 to vote for Michelle Stennet for Senate seat District 25.

I am sure that some might wonder why a Republican is endorsing a Democrat. In our family, we live by three Fs: Faith, Family and Friends. Clint and Michelle have been such close friends of ours that we consider them family. Michelle and Clint have always been a team, very supportive of one another. Politically they have always been in tune with Idaho. They own farms in the Magic Valley and have a real understanding of water rights, ranching and farming.

I observed Michelle represent District 25 in the last session of the Legislature during Clint's illness. Everyone I know that observed her serve, including me, thought she did so with distinction and class. Michelle has a very strong work ethic. She is very intelligent and personable. Michelle is a very good listener. She always gathers all the information she can and makes decisions based on that information in the best interest of District 25 and the state of Idaho. She works well with all the members of the Senate and has gained the respect of her colleagues of both parties. It is my opinion that the voters of District 25 would be best served by voting for Michelle Stennett for state Senate District 25.
