Crow To Run Again For District 3 Seat

From Staff And Wire Reports
 

Gordon Crow says he will run for a third term as a District 3 state senator.

Crow, a Republican, was first elected in 1994. He characterizes himself as one of the chief architects of welfare and Medicaid reform in Idaho.

Idaho’s welfare rolls have been cut in half as a result, he said.

Simultaneously, Crow says he has sponsored legislation that “has diminished the ability of government to interfere in our businesses and families.”

If re-elected, Crow could become chairman of the Senate Commerce and Human Resource Committee, he said.

He also plans to continue work on improving child care following a review of North Idaho day-care facilities he directed last year.

Crow is a public relations consultant, a former journalist and mining industry spokesman.
