Mat Erpelding, a Democratic candidate for Idaho House of Representatives District 19 A, announced Friday that he has received the endorsement of Former District 19 Senator Sue Reents.
The public is invited to meet Erpelding at a campaign house party from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. Friday at the Zuckermans, 905 N 18th St.
Erpelding, a small business owner and educator, has worked as a policy aide for Minority Caucus Chair Representative Brian Cronin. In her endorsement, Reents said:
"Mat will act as a steward for progressive legislation, and has the tenacity required by any Democrat in the Idaho Legislature. Mat has been working to build the party behind-the-scenes for several years, and understands that in Idaho, building a strong Democratic party outside of Ada County is essential. Mat has a breadth and depth of leadership experience that will be beneficial to District 19 and to all of Idaho."
