Balukoff, Marley tour eastern Idaho


Democratic gubernatorial candidate A.J. Balukoff is conducting a “listening tour” this week in eastern Idaho.

Balukoff, of Boise, won the May 20 Democratic primary by a handy 30-point margin, turning back a challenge by Terry Kerr of Idaho Falls.

Former state Sen. Bert Marley, of McCammon, a candidate for lieutenant governor who was unopposed in the Democratic primary, will accompany Balukoff on the tour.

“We are traveling the state to hear directly from Idahoans about the issues that are most important to them,” Balukoff said. “You are the experts in your communities.”

The candidates plan

stops at the following locations:

• Blackfoot meet-and-greet, 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., today, Bingham County

Senior Citizens Center, 20 E. Pacific St.

• Liberty Festival on the Falls, 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., Friday, Memorial Drive, Idaho Falls.

• Color in Motion 5K, 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Porter Park, Rexburg.
