    As one of the residents of the aforementioned zip code in Joan's diary, I only hope this enthusiasm for Obama trickles down the ticket not only to Larry LaRocco and Walt Minnick, but also to some of our local candidates for office in Ada County.

    Dave Langhorst and Paul Woods are running for two County Commissioner positions.  We also have District 14 and 20 Democrats like Michelle Waddell, who is running against the House Majority Leader Mike Moyle.  This is a man who has singlehandedly prevented the citizens of Ada and Canyon Counties from having the option (via a vote) of raising our local sales tax 0.5% to raise funds for improving the public transit system.

    We all need to remember that on November 4th, we are not only electing a new President, 35 US Senators and 435 members of the US House.  We are also electing folks for literally thousands of local offices all across the country.  Don't forget that the class of 2010 will have the ability to shape the political landscape for the next decade via redistricting.  We need to have more governors and state legislatures under Democratic control for this process!
