Lawrence Denney is our newly elected Sec. of State, replacing a retiring, very long term official. I had reason to go to his office this week, to meet with him about an election bill I’m pursuing. He is very welcoming and friendly, and he gave me great advice about the process. Remember, he was Speaker of the House for many years, so he knows the ropes!
The very next day, as a member of the Ed. Committee, I attended a lunch honoring Professional Technical Education (PTE) groups in Idaho, and the Secretary of State was there as well. Surrounded by PTE students, he read a formal proclamation from the Governor, naming February as PTE month in Idaho.
It was great to see the excitement and motivation in the students who are achieving higher levels of success than they ever expected.
