The following Press Release was sent out by Rep. Dorothy Moon (R-Stanley) who is a candidate for Secretary of State. Note: Press Releases do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of those at the Idaho Dispatch.
America’s system of free and fair elections is under attack, and that threatens the continued existence of our Republic.
At the same time, our state’s entire economy is weighed down by federal land mismanagement.
For these reasons, I have decided to ask voters for their support as I run for the Republican nomination for Idaho Secretary of State.
It has been an honor to represent the hard-working people of rural Idaho, promoting our shared conservative values, in the state Legislature. There are great men and women in Idaho’s heritage logging, ranching, mining and recreation industries, and serving as their voice in that role has driven me to have their backs.
I believe my legislative work, education career, business acumen and life experiences have uniquely qualified me to serve Idaho as your next Secretary of State. And no one can question my commitment to conservative principles.
My home up the Yankee Fork of the Salmon River east of Stanley where I live with my husband Darr, a professional engineer, land surveyor and geologist. I have two hardworking adult sons I couldn’t be more proud.
I have spent most of my professional life as an educator and business owner. With a Bachelor of Science degree in Secondary Education and a Master of Science degree in Resource Planning my skill set is solid and tested.
For the past 27 years I have served as President of Moon & Associates Inc., a civil engineering and land surveying business. As such I’ve had the opportunity to meet people from across the state who have a stake in the development of small businesses and large industries in Idaho. Small business is the economic heartbeat of Idaho and I intend to keep them whole and prosperous.
An important duty of Secretary of State is to sit on the Idaho Land Board. With a majority of Idaho’s lands federally managed opportunities for our children to return to their rural homes are becoming increasingly limited. Idaho needs a leader who is willing to stand up to the Feds and demand an end to smoke-filled summers and idled natural resource jobs.
With abundant resources Idaho’s future can remain bright affording economic prosperity, clear skies and clean water for all.
I also know what must be done to make sure no one will ever be able to interfere with our elections.
I hope to continue working hard for you as Secretary of State ensuring fair and free elections, business opportunity and as a member of Idaho’s Land Board. I appreciate your support and vote!
Rep. Dorothy Moon
