Herndon has worked hard for our families

| May 15, 2024 1:00 AM

On May 1, 2024, at 6:30 p.m. Senator Scott Herndon spoke before the congregation at Regeneration Calvary Chapel. The speech entitled, “Watching Jesus at Work in the Senate” was encouraging and informative. Herndon also shared experiences of Jesus at work. I encourage voters to listen to the speech at regencc.com/sermons.

Senator Herndon covered several topics and shared stories about the struggles and victories of passing laws. Herndon, who represents most of Bonner and Boundary counties, worked hard for our families. The senator and others passed bills protecting Idahoans by defining genders and sports teams, forbidding males from participating on female teams, and protecting Idaho children from pornographic material in government-funded libraries and schools, and from accessing it through online servers. Also, congressmen pressed Idaho state offices to submit operating budgets on bills separate from additional requests, giving congress power to vote “no” without hindering operations. 

Several people brought in campaign flyers they recently received in the mail. One flyer, from “Idaho Legacy Fund,” contained statements aimed at discrediting Herndon. One stated the Senator didn’t vote for funding Idaho State Police. Herndon voted “no” on one police-funding bill because the police added an expensive helicopter to the budget, and Herndon didn’t want taxpayers to have to pay for it — not because he doesn’t want to fund Idaho State Police. Another statement implied Herndon didn’t protect Idaho children. These implications are false. Idaho Legacy Fund supports Democrats and discredits Republicans. Don’t let them deceive you.
