Retain real representation

    Finally, after many years, Legislative District 26 is represented by someone who is a true citizen of this district. Someone who has true influence in the Idaho Legislature, a man who as a leader among his peers can and does articulate the views and needs of this district; a man who can exert the power to push legislation important to us through the Legislature. Steve Miller is a person who is calm but forceful, ardent but introspective, intelligent and inventive, a man that we hopefully elected in 2012, and now that he has lived up to our expectations we should re-elect.
    We should closely follow this fall’s campaign, listening to the debate, understanding the issues as they are articulated by the candidates and if we do, I am confident that it will be apparent that Steve Miller is far and away the best choice for representative from District 26.
    Steve Miller is opposed by a respected engineer and a famous Olympic champion of the 1968 games. The games of 1968 were a long time ago and being an Olympic champion from Oregon nearly 50 years ago does not qualify a person to represent a vast legislative district in central Idaho. This district needs a person who was born and raised in District 26, who is also a graduate engineer, a business man who pioneered the organic food industry in Idaho, a pillar in his church, father of two engineers and a naval doctor, a stockman, a range conservationist, a farmer, a widower, a compassionate listener, a doer and all around good guy.
    Steve Miller has proved that he is a good legislator and that he deserves to be re-elected. Let’s proudly send Steve Miller back to Boise as our representative.
