Pence fosters education

District 25 voters: Please support the re-election of Donna Pence as our District 25 representative for Blaine, Camas, Gooding and Lincoln counties.

Donna is not just a one-dimensional representative. She relates to the farmer, the businessman, the educational community, parents and, of course, all of them as taxpayers. She recognizes the importance of a strong educational system. As a longtime resident of southern Idaho, she understands the different situations that exist in our small rural communities and works tirelessly with commissioners, school trustees and constituents to find ways to solve our unique needs.

The Food Producers of Idaho is a coalition of farm-related organizations that keep track of the progress of bills related to agriculture. Donna has earned their "Ag All Star" status for the last five years. In recent years, there was an attempt to eliminate the residential component of the Idaho School for the Deaf and the Blind in Gooding. Donna worked diligently to find a solution to resolve this misguided effort. Fortunately, for hearing and visually impaired children, and for southern Idaho's economy, her efforts paid off.

Donna Pence has the right background to help Idaho's schools prepare for the future. She will fight for common-sense solutions to make sure our kids get the quality education they deserve. She has been a strong advocate in the promotion of online and virtual class offerings. This is especially important to rural school districts.

As a retired teacher, Donna understands that a good education is more important than ever before in Idaho's history. Today's world has little room for educational shortcomings or failures. A less-than-adequate education may doom many of our future generation to a life of poverty. Donna has the experience and training as an educator to continue to fight for the right combination of opportunities for our kids. Our kids are too precious to cut corners on their futures.

Please support Donna Pence this November.
