Ringo reflects Idaho values

As a retired educator, I urge your vote on Nov. 4 for Shirley Ringo for Congress.

As a teacher, she spent 38 years in public education, including 25 years at Moscow High School, helping young people develop their capabilities and achieve their potential. As a recipient of a Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics Teaching, she knows that it’s critical for Idaho’s future and America’s future that all students have the support necessary to attain an education appropriate for achieving their goals. In Congress she will stress the importance of appropriately funding the public school enterprise.

Ringo is a leader for all of Idaho. After 14 years in the Idaho House, her colleagues chose her to co-chair the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee.

Ringo’s values are Idaho’s values. Give everyone a shot at the American Dream. Reward hard work with fair tax policies and an increase in the minimum wage. Build an economy that’s fair and lifts everyone up. Insist on accountability in government. And protect Idaho for future generations.

Her serving Idaho in Congress will help to convert those values into reality. Please vote for Shirley Ringo for Congress on Nov. 4.

Richard Chilcote
