During his last term (’91–’92) as Idaho’s 2nd district congressman (1984-1992), Richard Stallings was instrumental in saving Boise’s Hulls Gulch from residential development. Representative Stallings introduced and assured passage of legislation the acquired $880,000 from the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund (off-shore oil royalties) to make the complicated, three-way land exchange work. The deal involved a year’s negotiation among private, city, state, and federal property interests and saved 100 acres of Hulls Gulch from development.
This year, Richard Stallings is seeking to regain his seat in Congress, which has been occupied by Mike Simpson since 1993, after Richard left it to run unsuccessfully for the US Senate.
On Friday, Sept. 5, 2014, Richard and his wife, Ranae, are celebrating their 51st wedding anniversary, and we’re throwing them a party. Please, join us.
We’re asking folks to honor their mutual commitment to public service by making a $51 contribution to Richard’s congressional campaign. Of course, no one will be turned away from this celebration. The campaign can use volunteers as well as money!
The party is from
5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
at the new Idaho Democratic Party headquarters
in the historic Morris Knudsen House
812 W. Franklin St., Boise.
