Gertonson, who's served as the democratic chair for Nez Perce County, is running for the Position A Representative race for district 6. He said it's time our legislature starts listening to one another and what's good for the state of Idaho
As part of Gertonson's campaign he's visited with more than 5,000 people throughout the area this summer to learn their concerns.
"Unless you're out here going door-to-door with people and talking with them, you're not working for the job," said Gertonson. "The job is House of Representatives and that means you represent the people."
Gertonson said he's the right man for the job because he listens and enjoys solving problems. He said it's time the district had someone represent the citizens of the state instead of the special interests of limited groups. Gertonson has been involved with county politics for the past ten years and has served as committee chair for the Idaho Democratic Party on both a regional and national level.
