WHALEN: Fearless in civic service

| May 14, 2014 9:45 PM

Pat Whalen is the only choice for sound leadership in the Idaho Senate to serve District 3.

I have known Pat for 20 years. He has proven time and again to be hard-working, honest and responsible. He is thoughtful and cautious, and is fearless in his service and leadership in our community.

Pat is a listener and a conservative problem-solver, not a politician. He recognized a gap in our representation in Boise, and set out to find a solution. In a move that is characteristic of Pat, he stepped forward to fill the void himself, rather than suggesting someone else make the sacrifice.

Pat believes in job creation, economic growth and improved education, and he is well-suited to effect change in those areas. I support Pat wholeheartedly, and I am in good company. Among those endorsing him are business and political leaders Ron Nilson and Dean Haagenson; former Lt. Governor, Jack Riggs; former Post Falls Mayor, Clay Larkin; former Senator, Jim Hammond; Representative Frank Henderson; and former Senator, Dick Compton. In addition to this impressive list, Pat is supported by the current Governor of Idaho, Butch Otter.

But your support will make the real difference for Idaho. Vote Pat Whalen on May 20th.
