Letter: Russ Fulcher

January 27, 2014 

Here is why I will cast my vote for Russ Fulcher to be the next governor of Idaho.

1) Russ clearly sees that the overreach of government in areas of health care, education and the environment - both from Washington, D.C., and from Boise - is stripping decision-making from Idahoans and placing it in the hands of government bureaucrats.

2) Russ knows that the key to Idaho's prosperity is to adhere to the original intent of the U.S. Constitution, which retains all rights to the states not specifically designated to the federal government.

3) Russ is not a career politician - he is a "citizen statesman" who on day one as governor will begin undoing the damage caused by Gov. Otter's influence, for example, in setting up Obamacare here in Idaho.

4) During his 10 years serving in the Idaho Senate, Russ was also a professional in the commercial real estate business. Russ understands the needs of Idaho's businesses! He worked 24 years in the technology sector as an international business executive promoting Idaho's economy in 26 countries and in every U.S. state.

Now more than ever our state needs Russ Fulcher as our governor. Russ is for us!
