English seeks Idaho Senate seat

Print Article

Cory Jane English announced Monday that she will run as a Democratic candidate for the Idaho Senate in Legislative District 4.

This district encompasses largely the same boundaries as the city of Coeur d'Alene and is currently being served by Republican Sen. Mary Souza.

“In this race, I will be talking to voters about values,” English said, in her announcment. “I know that my values and those of most Idahoans are very similar, and yet often it seems the values we share are not reflected by those who represent us in Boise.”

English said her values include compassion and fairness.

“I believe we must treat one another with dignity and respect. Using these values as a guide in policy formation will level the playing field for all Idahoans, allowing each of us to trust in a secure future,” English said.

Her professional background is in health care. English is a physical therapist who has practiced for 25 years, mostly in a hospital setting.

English and her husband, Dan, raised their four children in Coeur d'Alene. She is active in her church and has served in leadership, just finishing a two-year stint as president of the congregation.

English previously volunteered for CASA and as a member of the North Idaho Behavioral Health Board. She enjoys biking, quilting, gardening and “especially our nine grandchildren.”
