  • Update from the Chair

    Posted: December 3rd, 2014

    Greetings!

    Our statewide election did not come out the way we had hoped despite all our hard work. However, we did have some successes at the local level and we can celebrate those elections. Thank you for all your work to help our candidates. Now we need to work on next year and the 1st thing that comes to mind is our Dottie Stimpson Award. We will be presenting the Award at our annual Membership Meeting in Boise in March.

    Paulette Jordon wins seat in Idaho Legislature.

    IYD is happy to congratulate young Democrat Rep-Elect Paulette Jordan on winning a very competitive race for the Idaho State Legislature. She will go on to represent Idaho’s District 5 starting January 2015.

    Jordan, 34, is a native and life-long resident of Idaho, as well as an enrolled member of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe, who has been involved in local politics and community activism for years. She has served three years as the youngest elected member of the Coeur d’Alene Tribal Council.

    Education, jobs and the economy are major priorities for Jordan, who aims to strengthen education and prioritize resources for Idaho schools. Her focus is to also promote economic opportunities that strike an important balance between industry and appropriate protections for local property owners and our unique quality of life.

    Paulette resides in the countryside of northern Idaho enjoying motherhood, playing sports, riding horseback and outings appreciating the great outdoors with family and friends.
