A big thank you to the candidates, volunteers

Although the numbers didn’t add up for the Democratic candidates in Twin Falls County, we should be proud of the people who ran for office.

They gave their time  and put their guts into their campaigns. It is no easy thing to put yourselves out there for the public.  But they visited thousands of homes and talked to hundreds of people. They put in many hours and worked hard to show there is a good alternative to the failed GOP-controlled regimes. They cared enough to want to make the county and Idaho better .

They deserve our respect.

Then there were the many, many volunteers who gave their time and money to make calls, man booths, canvas and more. And the Democratic county committee members also deserve applause for their work and organization, as well as Jessi Boyer for her spectacular work in the campaign office.

No matter the final tally, these people are all winners.
