The future of Idaho politics

It was refreshing to see nine courageous legislators stand together in Meridian last week and continue to shape the future of Idaho politics. Our representatives, Heather Scott (District 1) and Priscilla Giddings (District 7), were leading the charge to change the good old boy cronyism that has pervaded Idaho politics for too long.

Three years ago, only Rep. Ron Nate (District 34) and Rep. Scott had the intestinal fortitude to begin to change the course. Now with their hands firmly on the rudder, these two along with the others may finally steer the Idaho political ship away from the establishment-driven mess we have seen for years.

We look forward to our representatives, Scott and Giddings, being a force for change in the future. It is sad that other North Idaho legislators appear to be more concerned with getting re-elected than fighting for the people whose trust sent them to Boise in the first place.
