By Larry Kenk, Idaho Democrat State Party Chair
I support AJ for various reasons.
1. AJ has held a position on the Boise School Board for many years and I believe he is currently the Chairman of that Board. This is the largest school district in the state and this gives him strong insight and leadership on all matters relating to education in Idaho. His positions and stances on education from Pre-K through K-12 and Higher Education are insights that we desperately need for our Governor.
2. AJ has held a position for many years on the St. Luke’s Hospital Board. In this position AJ is constantly in tune and up to date on how legislation and governmental action affects the type and quality of healthcare Idaho citizens need and how best to answer those tough issues on how best to bring affordable health care to all of Idaho.
3. AJ is a very accomplished Businessman and has many business interests as well as a wide range of contacts in the business world of our state. He has worked in conjunction and partnership with many of our state’s leading businessmen and groups. He knows what business needs to be successful in Idaho. In order to attract new business with good paying jobs, our Governor has to truly understand the inside of business from all angles and AJ has been there and done just that. Idaho needs a Governor that not only has the insight in Idaho’s business needs, but also how that directly relates to Idaho’s workers. The State of Idaho will prosper only when Idaho’s businesses and families prosper. And AJ will bring that to the office of the Governor.
4. Charitable Organizations are a large part of AJ’s and his wife Susie’s live. He knows what hardships many of the families in Idaho face and he not only talks about the problems, but he is “hands on” when working on the problems to find solutions. His resume includes many boards and foundations that he and Susie work with and are members of also.
I could continue on about the many qualities that AJ possess to be our next Governor and why I support him, but you time and space is limited. I will close this by saying that just listen to the “from the heart” comments AJ Balukoff makes as his is responding to the issue that Idaho is facing. He has the knowledge, the insight, the background and the ability bring the answers to our government that Idaho needs as we face the obstacles ahead on education, jobs and the economy.
