MOSCOW, ID - Over the last few weeks, we've introduced you to nine of the local candidates on the Latah County ballot.

The final candidate is Paulette Jordan, the Democrat running against Cindy Agidius for Idaho House Seat Five A. Jordan said that she's running because both women and Democrats are under-represented in Idaho's legislature, and she believes that she would be able to help fix some of the main issues that the state is faced with today.

"Right now, education is our top issue, and jobs," said Jordan. "We're seeing a lot of jobs leaving the state of Idaho and I would like to see that come back. We have to look at economic growth, of course."

Like many of the candidates running for state senate, Jordan believes that Idaho can create jobs through its natural resources, such as timber and agriculture. Unlike her opponent, she does not support Propositions One, Two, and Three. She said that instead of investing great deals of money into technology for students, the state should invest in teachers' salaries so that Idaho can attract better educators and become a more competitive state.
