Short Session?

There have been a number of legislators (I won't point any fingers) that would like to see the 2008 Legislative Session be one of the shortest in Idaho history. Well, to be blunt, I hope it isn't. Right now our State is facing too many urgent issues to simply walk away because we are uncomfortable in the close quarters. To be sure, there are some that say that I have my position because, "You get to go home every night." Hogwash. Actually, being one of only a handful of legislators who have the responsibility of juggling a young family, full-time job, and the legislature, if anyone should be clamoring for a shortened session it should be me. I'm not, however, because I know that the people of Idaho expect us to do our jobs and make the State a better place to live. I would never advocate for wasting taxpayer dollars on unnecessary session length, but my failing to address the issues facing our State would do just that. Let's be clear, Idahoans deserve our legislature to be committed to this process. Suspending rules, avoiding issues, or any other tactics is a disservice to our State. This is public service and we must be fully committed to serving.

I hope other legislators come around to your way of thinking. Thinking about doing the people's business not just get-in/ get-out/ we're done! Keep up the good work.

Branden,
I got got your mailing today and I've got to say I'm impressed with your transparency. We met for a few minutes while you were campaigning door to door. We may be on different sides of some issues but I really like the openness you seem to have. I think I may have voted correctly this time.

I'd love to read your thoughts in a future blog post about public transportation. Funding mechanisms is "how", I'm curious how you feel about "if" public transport will work in the Valley.
