Remington is a hard worker

John Remington is running for state representative in our District 26, which includes Blaine, Camas, Gooding and Lincoln counties. This seat is currently held by Wendy Jaquet, who is retiring.

John Remington has been shadowing Wendy Jaquet, Donna Pence and me for a year to all of our town meetings and events to watch, ask questions and introduce himself in preparation for this position. He has visited all of the communities in our district numerous times. He has met with mayors, city council members, county commissioners, agency heads, school personnel, senior citizens, farmers and a wide variety of business owners, and is traveling the district door knocking.

To devote that much time to understand the job before possibly being elected shows his dedication to being thoughtful and thorough in his work.

Remington is community minded and family oriented. He and his wife, Rita, have raised two sons here in Idaho.

John Remington has 24 years of experience working throughout our district as a school administrator, and has also been a history teacher for the past 30 years. In 2011, he was voted Athletic Director of the Year for District IV 1A, which overlaps our political district. Over the years, he has developed strong friendships from Richfield to Bliss to Carey to Gooding.

John Remington will bring a fair-minded perspective to the Legislature, to find solutions without partisan politics. He will listen and treat all areas of our district equally.

I am confident John Remington will provide strong and active leadership in the Idaho Legislature. Please join me in voting for John Remington on Nov. 6.

Michelle Stennett

State senator, District 26
