Senator Nicole LeFavour faces an important congressional campaign fund raising deadline on June 30. Please donate today.

"This is a very important time to show the state and the nation that Nicole has your support!" - Stalwart Progressive Activist Cindy Gross

Nicole LeFavour said:

I’m an Idaho Democrat because Democrats care about working people, families and small businesses. We believe in communities and that people pull together to overcome great obstacles. We believe a strong public education system and a more affordable college education are the foundations of the American dream. Our nation needs new congressmen and women determined to solve problems and lead our country back to prosperity and the values of compassion and cooperation that made us great. -
Nicole

I'm Senator Nicole LeFavour. As a teacher and former small business owner who grew up in central Idaho, I know Idaho can do better for its schools, at creating jobs and and protecting its clean drinking water and wild places. I've served eight years in the Idaho legislature standing up for small class sizes and to stop budget cuts which have eliminated thousands of jobs. I ask for your vote and support as a donor or volunteer this election. I'd like to be your next Congresswoman and I very much look forward to working with you.

Election day is Tuesday November 6. Please make sure to talk to people you know about the issues in this race and why their votes matter on Tuesday November 6.

THE ECONOMY • Our nation’s job creators are not millionaires or corporations but small businesses and regular working people. Americans create jobs when they can participate fully in the economy, when they can afford to replace a broken washing machine, buy clothes for their children, fix the car, eat out at a restaurant or afford a home or college degree.

FINANCIAL CRISIS • Congressman Simpson voted again and again to loosen the federal banking regulations that led to our nation’s financial crisis. Sadly he also voted to spend $700 billion to bail out banks without providing any help for the small businesses struggling to get loans to create jobs across Idaho.

FAIRNESS • Our nation has reduced taxes on millionaires at a time when our national debt has reached record levels. Congress should allow the Bush era tax cuts to expire for those making more than $250,000 a year and keep the cuts and credits in place for working families and seniors. If the most wealthy 1% in America again paid their fair share we’d trim more than $1.2 trillion from the deficit.

JOBS • I am dedicated to restoring jobs, not eliminating thousands with repeated budget cuts. Food processing plants have closed and most Idaho products are now exported as raw materials, sending Idaho food producing jobs overseas and across state lines. I’d ensure grants, not incentives (which shift taxes to small business and families), are available for businesses to open food manufacturing facilities that create jobs and prosperity in Idaho.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
