Sen. Stennett names temporary sub

Sen. Clint Stennett, D-Ketchum, announced today that his wife, Michelle, will sub for him for the first part of this year's legislative session. Stennett missed last year's session while undergoing treatment for brain cancer; former Sun Valley Mayor Jon Thorson filled in for him. Thorson had also filled in for Stennett for a week the previous year, when he underwent surgery for the cancer.

Stennett said in a statement that his tumors are gone and he recently completed his final chemotherapy treatment, but his recovery is delaying his return. “I am so grateful to be looking forward on this journey and must keep my health and wellness as my focus," he said. "In the meantime, I am confident that Michelle will do a great job representing District 25. She travels the area with me and has a clear understanding of the issues affecting our communities.” He added,  “I thank the people of my district and this state for their prayers and good wishes on my behalf.” Click below to read his full news release.

In the meantime, I am confident that Michelle will do a great job representing District 25. She travels the area with me and has a clear understanding of the issues affecting our communities,” Clint Stennett stated.
    “The unwavering support of my family, friends, the community, and my colleagues at the Statehouse has been a great blessing,” Clint Stennett said. “I thank the people of my district and this state for their prayers and good wishes on my behalf.”
