Education, the economy, transparency in state government, and some of the recently concluded legislative session's most controversial issues are sure to dominate conversations as Democratic gubernatorial candidate A.J. Balukoff takes his "listening tour" to communities in central and North Idaho this week. Balukoff will be accompanied by Bert Marley, Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor. “We are traveling the state to hear directly from Idahoans to learn about the issues that are most important to them,” said Balukoff. “You are the experts in your communities. No one knows the local needs better than those who live and work here everyday.” The event information for Balukoff and Marley is listed below:
- Kootenai County Democrats Spring Forth & Meet the Candidates, 5-8 p.m. Wednesday, Lake City Center, 1916 N Lakewood Drive, Coeur d'Alene.
- Boundary County Meet & Greet, noon-2 p.m. Thursday, Mugsy's Tavern & Grill, Bonners Ferry
- Shoshone County Meet & Greet, 5-6 p.m. Friday, City Limits Pub & Grill, 108 Nine Mile Rd, Wallace.
Question: How much will the divide in the Idaho Republican Party help Balukoff?
