Barron

POST FALLS — With Don Cheatham announcing today that he would retire after the 2020 session, Alex Barron of Post Falls said he would file his candidacy for State Senate District 3, which encompasses western Kootenai County.

His initial supporters include Neil Oliver, former chairman of the Kootenai County Republican Party, Karen Calisterio, former chairwoman of the Republican Liberty Caucus of Idaho, and former Idaho State Rep. Elizabeth Allan Hodge, an advocate for individual liberty and free markets and the recipient of the Idaho Freedom Foundation Ralph Smeed Lifetime Achievement Award.

Barron was born in Chicago to a single mother. He graduated from high school with honors and joined the U.S. Navy at the age of 17. He served honorably in the armed forces during the First Gulf War and spent over 10 years serving this nation overseas.

Barron graduated from the University of Maryland with a B.S. in Information Systems Management using the G.I. Bill. He spent the next 12 years as a successful small business owner — supplying critical information technology in support of our troops on the battlefield. His campaign will focus on promoting his Opportunity For All Agenda.

“I am running for State Senate because I believe my neighbors in District 3 deserve a new generation of innovative conservative leaders dedicated to unleashing prosperity for Idaho residents,” he said.

“As I campaign throughout District 3, I look forward to hearing from the voters and better understanding their needs, ideas, and concerns. I am a conservative, dedicated to liberty and promoting the Christian values that Make America Great. We like our government small, our taxes low, our borders strong, and our speech free.

“When elected, my practical engineering thinking and my can-do military service attitude will be effective in protecting Idaho taxpayers and building up our great state with creative new ideas for our and future generations.”
