February 2012 Political Soup

kaymerriamOn Tuesday, February 14th, the Bannock County Democrats will be holding our February 2012 Political Soup lunch. We'll be serving up some yummy soup and bread between 11:30 am and 1:00 pm.

This event will be held at our headquarters, which are located at 355 Yellowstone Ave., across the street from Mama Inez restaurant.

Our speaker is Idaho State Journal columnist Kay Merriam. She will speak about the South End connector. It will be a great time to get answers in a fun, informal way and to enjoy some Valentine Day's treats.

Political Soup is a great way to stay in touch with fellow Democrats in our area, as well as to pass around ideas and suggestions. Entrances are at the front and back of the building, with parking in back. We look forward to seeing you there! For more information about this event, please contact our organization at chairman@bannockdemocrats.org.

Pizza & Politics

pizzapoliticsThe 2012 Legislature is off to a fantastic start and so are Idaho Democrats. With early victory on the creation of a bi-partisan legislative committee to craft meaningful ethics reform, Idaho Democrats are now pushing a series of job creation bills. Idaho Democratic Legislative leaders will be in town this weekend to provide details and gather feedback on their Accountability and Ethics Initiatives and Idaho Jobs and Opportunity Blueprint package. We welcome the public to join this important work to bring jobs back to our communities, grow our Idaho businesses and ensure meaningful ethics reform.

This event is being sponsored by the Bannock County Democrats, Idaho Democratic Party and the Idaho Democratic Legislative Caucus. It will be held on February 4, 2012 from 1:30 to 3:30 pm at Pocatello City Hall, which is located at 911 N. 7th Ave., in Pocatello. 

Please join House Minority Leader John Rusche, Senate Minority Leader Edgar Malpaei, Sen. Diane Bilyeu, Rep. Elaine Smith, Rep. Roy Lacey and Rep. Sue Chew. They will discuss the ongoing 2012 Legislative Session and answer questions from the public. They look forward to meeting and talking with Bannock County residents.
