Gary Suppiger is the right person for District 1 seat

I have known Gary Suppiger for many years. My admiration for him started when he volunteered, at the school where I taught, to teach additional math skills to students before regular school hours. He did this consistently for over 10 years and his program not only excited kids about math but culminated in a yearly math competition and overnight trip which he chaperoned.

When Gary told me, he intended to run for the school board, I wasn’t surprised because it was in perfect order with his commitment to children and their education. I was thrilled when he won. Now, I believe running for State Representative in District 1 Seat B is, again, in perfect order with Gary’s belief that schools are the heart of our community and our future in general. I understand his concern about the inadequacy of the current way of funding schools in our state and the disparity this system inherently puts in place. Bravo to him for wanting to tackle this issue!

Gary Suppiger is a devoted husband and father of three, a successful small business owner and a man with a strong sense of civic duty, integrity and intelligence. His desire to serve the citizens of No. Idaho has expanded and constantly grown over time. I whole-heartedly endorse Gary Suppiger for State Representative in District 1 Seat B in the upcoming Republican Primary on May 19.
