Welcome

Thank you for visiting my campaign website.

Boise is an amazing city, and I am proud to call Idaho my home. During the 2012 campaign, I knocked on thousands of doors in District 19. I listened to concerns and had great conversations to learn about the needs and expectations of my D19 neighbors. I understand what our District expects from the Idaho Legislature. As government officials, we have a responsibility to improve and expand our state by fully investing in education, encouraging responsible economic growth , and creating a welcoming environment for all of our citizens.

I am honored to serve District 19 as an elected member of the Idaho House of Representatives, and I ask for your continued support moving forward. I am always looking for folks who want to move Idaho forward. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact me.

Sincerely,

Representative Mat Erpelding

 

Our tragedy in recent years springs from a leadership principally motivated by fear. Our Founding Fathers were a different breed. They acted on their faith, not their fear. They did not believe in fighting fire with fire; crime with crime; evil with evil; or delinquency by becoming delinquents. They set themselves against the terrors of a totalitarian state by structuring a government that would obey the law. They knew that the only way to escape a closed society was to accept the risk of living in an open one.”
