Candidate for District 17 House Seat A

Rep. John Gannon


I was motivated to be a candidate for the legislature in 2012 by several education mandates passed by the Legislature in 2011, called the Luna Laws. Part of my testimony to the Joint Finance Appropriations Committee in 2011 was included on Idaho Reports, a PBS station news program, and I advocated in many other ways against these mandates.

I am a part time attorney now, and last year I had an Idaho Legal Aid contract to provide services in civil matters to low income people who were mistreated by foreclosure scams, unfair collection practices, and sales disputes. These are areas I have worked in before. I have served on many committees in the past, fought for irrigation tax reform – which was very interesting, and participated in 6 Supreme Court/Court of Appeals decisions, 25 or more jury trials and counseled probably 3000 people in civil matters. I graduated from UC Davis, UC Hastings College of Law and the USAR JAG School. Most of my military service was standby reserve.
