Grangeville, Idaho- Today, Idaho Lt. Governor candidate Kelley Packer visited her 200th city and all five Indian Reservations in Idaho. When Packer kicked off her campaign on April 10th, she committed to touring Idaho by making stops at all 200 incorporated cities and the five federally recognized Indian Reservations by the end of October. With today’s visit to Grangeville, Packer reached a major achievement in her campaign and has shown that when she makes a commitment she will see it through. Packer prioritized visiting so many Idaho cities to learn as much as she could about the people and places she would represent as Lieutenant Governor.
Kelley Packer is committed to standing up for all the good and hard-working people she has met throughout Idaho. Describing one stop on her trip, she said “I love how friendly Idahoans are. People were always ready with a smile, a kind word or a fun question about what it’s like driving a big rig with my face all over it.” Kelley got to travel many places on the RV tour with her mom, her daughter, and granddaughter as well as other family members and friends. These experiences remind Kelley of the importance of family values and what strong leadership in Idaho can offer to future generations and motivates her to keep campaigning.
Many mayors and other community leaders and citizens showed their support by signing their names on the big map of Idaho on the campaign RV.
