Laurene Sorensen is running for Idaho House seat 5-B. Her credentials are impressive: A bachelor’s degree from Oberlin College, master’s from Columbia, law degree from Georgetown.
Those accomplishments reflect her intelligence and work ethic, but Laurene is not a show-boater. She’s committed to public service and grounded in compassion. She’s pro-business and pro-education, believing the two are integrally bound. Whether one aspires to a college degree, professional-technical certification, or something else, opportunities to earn a good living and accomplish life’s goals ought not be limited to affluent families.
Laurene supports Proposition 2, expanding Medicaid to 62,000 Idahoans who earn too much to qualify now but too little to afford health insurance through the state exchange. She wants to attract and retain businesses that pay good wages. Laurene believes in protecting access to public lands, not relinquishing it to special interests that would keep us from hunting, fishing, and recreation areas Idahoans have enjoyed for generations.
Protracted single-party control and legislators who blindly toe the party line aren’t good for Idaho. It’s time to open up new possibilities, generate new ideas, and move Idaho from near last in so many categories to top of the class.
Vote Laurene Sorensen, Idaho House.
