Pence has stood up for her district

Donna Pence has served as a state representative for our district since 2004 and is now seeking re-election. I have known Donna since her first term and have walked some of the Hailey streets with her and observed her interaction with and interest in her constituents.

She has served us well as a member of the House Education, Agriculture and Natural Resources committees. In 2012 she championed legislation that provided tax credits for value-added ag jobs, spoke up for alternative energy development and encouraged more state support for rural development. She and her husband live near Gooding and appreciate the opportunities it affords for service to both charitable and social functions.

Donna is a retired teacher. She considers schools the No. 1 priority for Idaho and our future so students will acquire lifelong skills to meet the demands of a changing job market and lifestyle.

A vote for Donna will permit us to continue to benefit from her representation and legislative expertise.

She, along with our senator and other representative, will hold meetings for us during the next session. Plan to attend these informative meetings where they answer questions and keep us abreast of Idaho legislative activities.

My vote this term has been cast for Donna; please widen her support circle by casting your vote for Donna Pence. (now District 26).
