There’s No Place Like Home

Hello, my name is Dorothy Moon, and I am your Legislative District 8B Representative. Living up the Yankee Fork of the Salmon River east of Stanley in Custer County has given me an up-close perspective of many issues that affect our District.

Employed as Special Education Director and science teacher from Challis Joint School District 181, I’ve gained insight into Idaho’s educational mandates. I am also a member of the Idaho Republican Party and presently Legislative District 8 Chairman, which includes the beautiful Lemhi, Custer, Boise, Valley and Gem Counties. District 8 is the heart of Idaho’s rich and majestic mountain country. The withdrawal of traditional opportunities, once a part of a federal Multiple Use plan, have left our children little choice but to leave the District for more productive lives elsewhere.

Economic development is important as is our way of life here in the great mountain west. I will work hard to limit government overreach and unwarranted regulation and taxation that has stifled free enterprise and winnowed away our livelihoods. I will support the principles of a sound economy, with the wisdom of locally controlled education and stand resolute to protect our Constitutional civil liberties and property rights. Please help me make Legislative District 8 a place where our children can make their homes too.
