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.
