Together We’re Building
A Stronger Idaho
From the very beginning, A.J. Balukoff learned the value of education and the dividends it can pay down the road. A.J. was the first person in his family to go to college, earning a scholarship to college and working his way through school in three years. He’s brought those values to the Boise School Board throughout his two decades of service. During his tenure, the Boise School District has risen to one of the best in the nation.
As a father and grandfather, A.J. knows just how important it is for families to have access to quality health care. Close to 80,000 Idahoans – including children and veterans – go without that every day. A.J. will work to expand Medicaid in Idaho so that all of our trusted friends and neighbors can wake up each day knowing they have options if they get sick or injured.
Growing up, A.J. practically lived outdoors hiking, fishing and hunting – a tradition in his family that lives on to this day. As Idahoans, we value our beautiful public lands. A.J. will fight efforts to sell off our public lands to special interests and out-of-state billionaires who will lock Idahoans out of some of our most pristine areas, and work to preserve public access now and for future generations.
Idaho’s families share these values and want the tools to succeed. Together, we can build a stronger and more prosperous state for everyone.
