About Jim Vandermaas
You may recognize Jim. In the 2018 primary, he ran for US Representative for Idaho in the 1st Congressional District. Jim is a retired public servant with a lifetime of leadership and experience. If elected, he will bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the US Senate.
Jim comes from humble beginnings. Raised by a single mother with 3 kids, by the age of 10 he had to start working to help support his family. By 16, he was independent and living on his own. This experience still guides him, and he is reminded of it as each of his own children reach this age of semi-adulthood. Jim still wonders how he survived on his own at this age.
Jim is guided by the idea of cultivating and living by shared common values. Although our sense of hope has been eroded by leaders who use fear and anger to divide us, Jim continues to work to restore it. “I have never lost that idealism, that sense of hope or purpose, because I know that things are better for all of us when we come together, working toward our common goals, shared values, and the common good of our country. We have the power to affect this change because the solution is within each of us. We need only look for these values and that hope within ourselves to be able to recognize it in others.”
