Republican Caroline Nilsson-Troy tosses hat in ring for Pos. 5, Seat B.
GENESEE, ID - Unlike tax season, the November Election is months away, but some politicians in Latah County are already campaigning.

Genesee resident Caroline Nilsson-Troy recently announced her candidacy. She's running for the District 5, Seat-B position in the Idaho State Legislature. Troy currently runs her own consulting business, and she said she's a 'citizen's candidate' that's new to the political scene.

"It just seemed like a good time for me to explore some other opportunities to give back to society and give back to Idaho," said Nilsson-Troy.

Troy is running as a republican, and she hopes to take the place of Representative Shirley Ringo, a democrat and former school teacher from Moscow. Ringo is giving up her seat in the House to run for Congress against Republican Raul Labrador.
