We support Laurie Lickley for Idaho House of Representative District 25A. Laurie is a hardworking, thoughtful candidate who will represent our district with honesty and integrity. She will bring a fresh voice to Boise, taking into consideration what is best for Idaho students, as well as Idaho educators. Running on a platform of strong families and communities, she supports education — understanding the importance of a strong education for our children’s futures. As veteran educators in the Magic Valley, we are excited to hear her voice speak for a stronger education for Idaho’s children.
Laurie is an honest, hardworking rancher, not afraid to get her hands dirty through hard work. Her experience working with the Idaho Cattle Association brings a depth of knowledge and experience of the ag industry that few other candidates possess. With the best interests of the people of the Magic Valley at the forefront of her decision-making, her strength lies in her ability to listen to issues and hear all sides. If she doesn’t know the answer, she takes the time to research the issue and find answers that are best for the people of our community.
Many people running for public office want to tell you what you should think about the issues. Laurie listens to what you think, what you want and what you need. She listens to all stakeholders and then makes a sound decision. She will do a great job for us in Boise. Please vote Laurie Lickley for District 25A State Representative on May 15.

LAURIE LICKLEY FILES FOR IDAHO HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES DISTRICT 25 A
March 5, 2018 – JEROME, ID – Laurie Lickley, a Jerome rancher and native Idahoan, announces her candidacy for the Idaho House of Representatives District 25 A.
The seat, currently held by Representative Maxine Bell who has indicated she wouldn’t run for re-election in 2018, covers all of Jerome County, eastern Twin Falls County, and a sliver of western Twin Falls County.
Lickley, a registered Republican, has served in multiple leadership positions in the community and at the state and national level. She was appointed by Governor Otter to the Idaho Beef Council from 2005-2011. She most recently served as President of the Idaho Cattle Association and director to the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association.
“I’m proud to be part of a fourth generation ranching family and a native Idahoan because it allows me to really understand what Idaho needs for a stronger future. I am committed to uphold our constitutional and conservative values in the form of hard work, integrity, and civil, collaborative conversations,” Lickley said. “I am passionate about working together to give our families and neighbors their chance at the American Dream through quality education, affordable healthcare, and opportunities for entrepreneurs and small businesses to thrive.”
Lickley and her husband, Bill, raised their two children on the family’s 100-year-old farm and ranch in Jerome and she continues to serve her community through the Idaho Foodbank, Leadership Idaho Agriculture, and the Jerome Rotary.
“I have known Laurie and her family for more than 10 years, during which time I have seen her always act with intelligence, humility, kindness and humor. She loves her family, Idaho and the agricultural community and way of life,” said Penelope Parker, owner of Parker Law Offices. “I cannot even begin to tell you how important it is for us to elect her to office; she is one of those rare individuals who will exceed all of our expectations.”
Lickley’s campaign will focus on creating stronger roots, stronger families, and stronger communities in Idaho through supported agricultural industries, a focus on retaining and recruiting teachers, affordable healthcare, and thriving small businesses.
“Laurie’s pragmatic, common sense approach to problem solving is a necessity in our statehouse to build bridges without compromising character or the fabric our community,” said Wyatt Prescott, former Executive Vice President of the Idaho Cattle Association. “Her leadership will carry on the no-nonsense statesmanship track record of District 25.”
