Sometimes a picture is worth a parcel of words. As most know, the individual County Chapter is the basis of our political party. We believe local government and local politics are (or at least they have been) the source of our society’s strength.
Above the County Chapter, for those who may not know, the Constitution Party of Idaho subdivides the State party into Areas, or “Districts”. These Areas correspond to the Idaho Judicial Districts. A map is shown below.
The reason we subdivide our party is due to the geographical shape, size and mountain barriers (not to mention time zones) of Idaho. Moving around in Idaho is problematic, from north to south; and if truth be told, from east to west in some parts of our Gem State, as Mssrs. Lewis and Clark discovered.
Our Areas, modeled after the “old-timer” Districts are more efficient. Local county neighbors can share resources more effectively in District Areas than is otherwise the case at a single consolidated State party level. Idaho ain’t Rhode Island, in other words.
As we move through 2013, it is our ambition to begin to strengthen not only our respective County Chapters, but also our Idaho Area leadership. We actively seek and encourage participatory citizenship in Idaho. If you are interested in making a stand on principles, and helping build a limited government political party, please consider the several opportunities that are unfilled at both the County Chapter and Idaho Area level subdivisions. Direct inquiries to the State Chairman, at the contact address found elsewhere on this website.
