a few thoughts


Wow - what an election! I'm happy to announce that my candidate/boss won his race - woo hoo! Jeff and I enjoyed the local festivites with friends and co-workers, meeting our elected representatives and getting on TV. It was great!

As I walked through downtown Boise and past the Capitol today, I couldn't help but think how lucky I am. It has been my great opportunity to work for our next U.S. Senator these past few months in our wonderful capital city. What a blessing it is to live in this great country where we have the right and responsibility to make our voices heard in electing our leaders.

Although I have enjoyed following the local and federal races, I am definitely excited to get past the campaign mindset and on to actual legislation, policy, and effective government. Here's to our wonderful country and those who have sacrificed to make it what it is today. May we all stand up to preserve the Constitution of the country they founded.

I did vote. But the person I voted for didn't win. What did I do wrong? So, I did read your 6 random things tag.. I knew the last one already. And I LOVE that you wrote it down. Star Wars FOREVER.
