BOISE – Governor Brad Little commented today on Tuesday’s election after he secured a large majority of the vote in a five-way gubernatorial race.
“I am very proud and humbled that we earned the continued confidence of so many Idahoans! THANK YOU, IDAHO!
“The election results translate one thing: the people have given us a mandate, and that mandate is to keep our state on this path of incredible and unprecedented success, to continue investing in parents, students, and teachers, and to show the rest of country that conservative governing promotes prosperity and freedom.
“Working together MATTERS. Our ability to get things done for the people MATTERS. Leadership MATTERS.
“Here in Idaho, we have responded to the call from citizens and businesses to make government responsive and accountable. Years of fiscal conservatism have positioned us to become the least regulated state, to give Idahoans back more of their hard-earned money through year after year of record tax relief, and to have the strongest economy in the nation.
“I want to congratulate all those who earned a vote of confidence from Idahoans in Tuesday’s election. I stand ready to work with them to meet the people’s expectations.
“WE’RE READY to continue investing in education – students, parents, and teachers – and brighter futures.
“WE’RE READY to defend family, faith, and freedom.
“WE’RE READY to continue providing Idahoans more relief from taxes and make meaningful investments in our children, families, schools, roads, water, and many other key areas to keep up with growth and continue our high quality of life.
“I will remain focused on working together to make Idaho the place where our children and grandchildren choose to stay.
“I am humbled to serve the people of Idaho and chart a course that keeps our state on track. It is truly an honor to receive a mandate from the people and work every day to fulfill it.”
