Pence helps her constituents

I’d like to write a few words in support of Donna Pence who is running for state representative for District 26.

Recently, I was having some problems with a state agency regarding a retirement concern. I contacted Donna and immediately had a personal call back from her. We discussed the matter and she promptly not only called the agency involved but also went to the office to talk with the staff face to face. Eventually the problem was solved and again she contacted me right away as to the results. 

I was quite impressed with her quick actions and attention, which to me demonstrated the true definition of a legislator concerned about her constituents. 

As a retired educator I know that Rep. Pence is very concerned about the state of public schools in Idaho. As all of us are, she too has voiced alarm at the cuts in education during the last few years and has stated she will fight to restore them. Additionally, she wants to see that more local control is returned to education instead of the power grab recently enacted by the state.

One of my concerns is the current state of political polarization on both sides of the aisle. It is truly refreshing that District 26 is represented by someone who cares little about the party affiliation of its residents.  

I truly believe that whatever your political bent, you will have the full attention and cooperation of Rep. Donna Pence if it is needed. Please consider giving her your support on Nov. 6.
