Letter: A reasonable voice for the Senate
I'm supporting David Nelson for the Idaho Senate for several reasons, not least of which is to defeat his incumbent opponent who's repeatedly demonstrated a narrow-minded, ungenerous view of politics.
A senior citizen and retired public school teacher, I have known David Nelson and his family for years and know firsthand his vigorous support of good education and his willingness to fund it.
He's a people person and someone, unlike his opponent, who appreciates the importance of social safety nets and Social Security. He would heed his constituents not disparage them.
Finally, for those of us who love Idaho's public lands, Nelson would protect them from those who would trade or sell them to commercial interests.
We need reasonable voices like Nelson's in the Senate.
