Sheila Olsen, renowned community and political leader, endorses Rebecca Casper for Mayor

"Based on my years of working closely with Rebecca Casper on significant local and state issues, I know how well Rebecca exemplifies 'the good you can do when you don’t care who gets the credit.' I am endorsing Rebecca Casper for Mayor of Idaho Falls because I know how much our community will benefit from her service and her leadership.

Rebecca’s contributions to community and state, too lengthy to list here, range from involvement in education, region water rights, promoting local business and economic development; and includes her recent appointment to the prestigious Line 2.0 Commission. Interesting details on Rebecca’s record of service are on her excellent website:www.casperformayor.com.

Rebecca is known for her ability to reach out to develop relationships and build bridges. It is important to me that Idaho Falls, building on the responsible government left to us by those who have gone before, remains a vibrant city. Rebecca’s goals to “solve, grow, enhance,” combined with her bright, principled and strong work ethic will serve us well as she influences and brings people together to find solutions.

My long history of political involvement has led me to appreciate all who have the interest and courage to enter into the arena, in this case both mayoral and city council races. After the election, I hope to see their continued service as we all work together in our own spheres of influence to improve our community and bless our neighbors." ~ Sheila Olsen
