My name is Paulette Jordan and I am running to be the next governor of Idaho.
I was born and raised in the countryside of northern Idaho, where I developed a strong connection to our state’s land and the people who share it. I am a proud member of the Coeur d’Alene tribe. My family, descendants of formidable Head Chiefs of the Great Northwest and Palouse region, taught me the importance of fighting for all people and protecting our natural resources. I have since served in the Idaho House of Representatives and I am a mother to two wonderful sons.
I am running for governor because the future for the next generation of Idahoans is at stake. Too many of our families and neighbors have been left behind.
ogether, we have the power to build a future where all Idahoans receive a high quality public school education. No matter who you are, you should have access to affordable healthcare and the opportunity to earn livable wages without the constant stress of how to make ends meet. I want to revitalize Idaho’s main streets and fix our government to make it more fair, more efficient, and more effective for all Idahoans.
I know what it takes to win tough races and I know a little bit about being an underdog. I was the only Democrat elected to the Idaho House of Representatives in all of Northern Idaho. If we win this race, I’ll be the first Native American governor in the country and the first female governor in Idaho’s history. But this race for governor is bigger than me, and it’s bigger than party politics. It is about the very heart and soul of Idaho: our people, our land, and our future.
I am profoundly honored and grateful for the grassroots support and momentum around my campaign so far and I would love for you to join my team today.
Together, we will restore our state to its original promise: an Idaho by the people and for the people.
Let’s get to work.
