Mat Erpelding, a Democratic candidate for Idaho House of Representatives District 19A, announced Friday that he has received the endorsement of former Idaho Senator Gail Bray.
Here's Bray's endorsement of Erpelding:
"Mat Erpelding has my support for the District 19 House (seat A). Of the 3 candidates, he is the clear choice. Mat has been in the trenches building consensus as a creative and thoughtful policy aid to Democratic Legislators, supporting our Democratic values as the hardworking Vice Chair of the Ada County Democrats, engaging in conservation issues as an Idaho outdoorsman and environmental educator, developing our future teachers as faculty at CWI, and growing a small business. He will “hit-the-ground running” with no learning curve, at ”home” in a process that often takes at least a session to become effective and to be of consequence. Mat will improve the democracy we love."
