Woman running for governor to help children

By  | 

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - The election may be a couple years out, but one woman has declared her candidacy for Idaho state governor.

Lisa Marie has been fairly active in the political sphere in Idaho.

She ran for Congress in 2014 and 2016, though she did not win.

She kept her campaign small and local, trusting people to look up her information if they were politically active.

She says the reason she keeps running is because she doesn't see the people in office doing the right thing.

She wants the main focus to be the children, and right now, it's just not there.

"I don't look at what I'm doing as a cause,” Marie said. “I'm just a mom speaking up. That's all I want to do is... I don't care what anyone's going to think anymore because there's too many moms and dads and kids that are going through this."

Everywhere she goes, she carries her campaign disclosure manual and a picture of her daughter.

Trying to work with her daughter's problems in a public system is what made her recognize that there needed to be a change.
