Blue Lady Speaks Out by Judy Ferro

  Latest: Roe v. Wade made a difference

One might think that, since the population of every district is now within five percent of 52,540, win numbers wouldn’t vary greatly from district to district...

But the number of registered voters in each district varies widely. Two Ada County districts do have over 30,000 registered voters, but Rexburg (D34) and Caldwell (D11) had just 16,700 and 17,100 prior to the primary election.

Latest: The not-so-secret war on our public schools:  Terry Gilbert

 

Proponents of state funding for private schools say parents need more “choice” in education.  The truth is parents have many choices when it comes to education – neighborhood schools, magnet schools, charter schools, innovation schools. But the profiteers want to line their own pockets and slowly starve our public schools to death.

"I'm committed to expanding the Democratic outreach in Canyon County.   We are the second fastest growing county in the state with so much potential for new voters.  The Youth vote, the Latino vote, the Senior vote, and the Rural vote are all needed to win. I believe we can build a welcoming Democratic organization that looks towards the future, embraces our diversity and believes in human rights for everyone."

The Quality Education Act, sponsored by Reclaim Idaho, will be on Idaho ballots on Nov. 8. Idahoans will vote to decide if an addtional $300 million a year is raised for classroom resources.
