Balukoff: decent, reasonable man

Letter: Eleanor Wagner Grangeville

I identify with the T.V. ad of the Republican who will vote for A.J. Balukoff. As a Republican, I am totally dissatisfied with those in power now who refuse to listen to their constituents.

With open mind, I attended a meeting with A.J. Balukoff in Grangeville. Attendees represented both parties and a cross section of citizens. I discovered a gracious, intelligent man without a hint of ego, who answered questions without trying to gain votes by being politically correct.

Besides improving our education system, does he believe in the Second Amendment? Yes. Will he surround himself with Republicans and Democrats to explore ideas to create better solutions? Yes. Is he aligned with Obama as some T.V. ads want you to believe? No! A.J. voted for the Republican candidate in the last presidential election. Would he have vetoed guns on campus? Yes! Because of the danger and money to implement this imprudent law. Is he against discrimination of any citizen? Yes.

These are a few subjects covered. What did I come away thinking? Here is a decent, reasonable candidate who is down-to-earth and identifies with the common citizens of Idaho. Cross the line and vote for A.J. Balukoff. I am.
