Thursday forum in Orofino features regional legislators

Rep. Giddings, Senator Crabtree to attend May 25 event

— Past and present Idaho legislators will be involved in community forum this Thursday, May 25, in Orofino.

The non-partisan Clearwater County Legislative Forum starts at 6 p.m. at Orofino Junior-Senior High School, planned jointly by the Clearwater County Democratic Central Committee and the Clearwater County Republican Central Committee.

According to organizers, the goal of this forum is to promote civic engagement and civil discourse and for Clearwater County Republicans and Democrats to work together to foster an informed community discussion, and for the community to learn more about the Idaho legislative process and issues that affect us at the county level.

Six current and former Idaho legislators will participate in the forum: Dist. 7, Rep. Priscilla Giddings (R) of White Bird; Dist. 7, Senator Carl Crabtree (R) of Grangeville; former Dist. 6 Rep. Dr. John Rusche (D) of Lewiston; former Idaho State Senator and Senate majority caucus leader Russ Fulcher (R) of Boise; Dist. 6 Senator Dan Johnson (R) of Lewiston; and Dist. 5 Representative Carolyn Nilsson Troy (R) of Genesee.

For information: Jerry Nelsen, chair of the Clearwater County Democratic Central Committee, 476-3759; or Mike Ryan, chair of the Clearwater County Republican Central Committee, .
