Votes are not valentines

If you had the chance to either rehire or replace an employee that didn’t show up for work, which would you choose? Do you know the names of your senators and representatives in Congress? Our current congressional representative, and our senator up for reelection rarely even return to Idaho, and when they do, they do not hold town halls, meet with constituents or even meet with the press.

They don’t show up for the job. It’s time to replace them with candidates who have worked hard, have a proven track record, and pledge to serve the people of Idaho. Paulette Jordan is running for the U.S. Senate. Rudy Soto is running for Congress in Idaho’s first district. Give them a chance to prove their worth and live up to their promises. Your vote is not a valentine — you aren’t confessing your love for the candidate. It’s a chess move for the world you want to live in. Voting for Paulette Jordan and Rudy Soto would be good chess moves.
