Pocatello, ID — Education is the topic of choice in Idaho from Common Core standards, education funding levels, wi-fi contracts to online education for students. The Bannock County Democrats welcome the Idaho Education Association's Director of Public Policy Bert Marley to speak to Bannock County residents about these hot button issues at their monthly Political Soup luncheon on Wednesday, September 11th.

This event will be held at our headquarters, located at 355 Yellowstone Ave., across the street from Mama Inez restaurant. Delicious soup and bread will be served between 11:30am and 1pm.
