Donna Pence is my choice for the Idaho state House of Representatives in District 25. Donna operates a small agribusiness specializing in raising trees for landscaping companies. She and her husband, Lew, began this business in 1998 and understand the difficulties encountered when developing small businesses.
Donna knows it's important for communities to support their local merchants and has served two terms on the board of directors for the Gooding Chamber of Commerce, working to strengthen business and community ties
While serving in the Legislature, Donna has supported making sure all citizens and businesses pay their fair share of taxes. She will fight against special deals made by the Idaho State Tax Commission to individuals and large corporations.
Donna has also been assigned by the Legislature to serve on the Idaho Rural Partnership's board of directors. The IRP brings together public and private resources in new collaborations to strengthen communities and improve life in rural Idaho. This experience has provided her with new ideas about how to efficiently support small businesses and attract new industries, such as wind farms, and the training programs we need to get the jobs that come with those industries.
Donna understands the needs of our small communities and she has the experience to be effective in this tough economy. She will be the best representative for our kids' future and the people who live in this district on important issues like jobs, fair taxes for small businesses and agriculture.
Please vote for Donna Pence for District 25 in this November's election.
