Mark ballots for Donna Pence

During the past several weeks, this paper has published several letters in support of Rep. Donna Pence. These letters list a number of her accomplishments and reasons to vote for her to continue representing District 26.

The reasons listed are all good reasons to vote for Donna. However, I would like to add another reason for voting for Donna Pence. If you live or work in Lincoln, Gooding, Camas or Blaine County,  your livelihood directly or indirectly depends on our natural resources. Agriculture, tourism and recreation in the four-county district all rely on the wise use of our water, soil, air, wildlife, plant resources and natural beauty.

Donna Pence is a practicing conservationist.  I have known Donna for well over 30 years. Joyce and I have hunted, fished, fenced riparian test areas and camped with Donna, Lew and their family.  All three of Lew’s and her three daughters are college graduates in natural resources and currently work in that area.

I urge the voters in the four-county area to join Joyce and me in marking our ballots for Donna Pence.
