Valley County Moving Forward.

From Dave Bingaman
THANK YOU to all of our supporters. We could not have done this without you. I look forward to thanking each of you individually yet, for now, I want you to know how much I appreciate your efforts in our campaign, your vote, and your support.

**************************************************************************************************************

I want to take this moment to reflect and thank all of you who have supported me in my campaign for House seat 8A. We could not have done what we have been able to do without the help of so many of you across Dist. 8. I wish I could say I now represent you all as Rep. Glick, but I am extremely pleased that with your help, we got Prop 2 passed for the 62,000! I am very gratified by this, having worked on the Expansion Initiative for some 10 months. I just talked to Luke M this afternoon and he informed me that Prop 2 Passed in ALL 5 counties in Dist 8!!!!!!!!!! Good work all! It has been my and Bonnie’s pleasure to get to know so many good folks across Dist 8. We will consider you all friends for life now. All of your relentless support has been humbling for me. I truly believe that we have elevated Idaho and our compassionate causes to a new level from which we cannot retreat. We have grown the party and lit fires of enthusiasm and activism. Reclaim Idaho is not going away either. They will just be looking for their/our next cause. (So rest up!) Where this leaves me I do not yet know. To have had the privilege of working with you all has been an inspiration to me. We need to keep this going. We have a powerful message of which we can all be proud. We have been a part of making history in Idaho-and making Idaho a more compassionate state for which I am exceedingly happy and grateful.Thanks to ALL of you, again, for your trust and belief in me, and for your tireless support. Well wishes to you all.

Jon Glick

Thursday, July 5th at 6:30 pm `

Veterans Park (Lenora St and 3rd St-Rt 55)

Meet the folks that helped get Medicaid on the November ballot in Idaho. In Valley County we got 10% of the registered voters signing the petition. McCall folks that helped get signatures and all that support Medicaid Expansion in Idaho are welcomed to attend.

You stood out in the cold with your clipboards in the dead of winter, traveled to neighboring districts and counties to knock on doors, carried petitions and gathered signatures everywhere you went for the last 6 months. Now it’s time to turn in nearly 73,000 valid signatures to the Secretary of State & celebrate! 

Reclaim Idaho/Medicaid for Idaho has joined Idahoans for Healthcare, a coalition of healthcare providers, business and community organizations and healthcare advocates to inform voters about the ballot initiative. We will be working side by side with Idahoans for Healthcare to get Medicaid Expansion passed November 6.

Join Idahoans for Healthcare on Friday, July 6 at 10am at the Idaho State Capitol for a press conference and public celebration as volunteers from across the state come together to submit the required signatures to put Medicaid expansion on the Idaho ballot.

What: Press conference and Medicaid expansion petitions turn-in event

Where: Idaho State Capitol, front steps

When: July 6, 10 am

Why: Medicaid expansion petitions that have been verified by county clerks from across the state are being gathered and prepared by volunteers to be turned in for official certification by the Idaho Secretary of State’s Office. Co-chairs for the Idahoans for Healthcare campaign will be introduced during the press event.

  • Clergy are encouraged to come in formal vestments/religious clothing.
  • Water will be available at the event, but please come prepared for hot, sunny conditions.
  • Idahoans for Healthcare is excited to run a winning campaign that appeals to all Idahoans–the majority of whom support Medicaid expansion. Signs will be available at the event. We ask all supporters to avoid bringing partisan signs or other materials.
