Thunder Mountain High School senior Joshua Dore wanted to share his experience with an Assembly candidate, and got his opportunity Wednesday morning.

Dore was one of three students in a group putting together an informational page on Loretto Jones, who is running in the Oct. 3 election for the District 1 Assembly seat. Jones was sharing some of her experiences with the group, which also included seniors Josh Elmore and Cameron Okins.

“I was telling Loretto about having to clean up needles behind Fred Meyer,” Dore said. “I work over there, and my manager and I had to go pick up beer bottles and needles.”

Experiences and ideas were flying in TMHS teacher Mara Sheakley-Early’s first-hour government class Wednesday morning, as four candidates in this fall’s election sat down with groups of students and discussed their views and platforms.
