Canyon County resident, Mila Wood, is running in the May 19 primary for Idaho House Legislative District 11, Seat A.
Over the past few years, Wood noticed taxpayers and local schools have been underrepresented, yet saddled with more regulation, more taxes, and less freedom – with no seat at the table. Wood is especially passionate about education and has actively participated and helped shape Idahoans For Local Education for the past ten years.
Disappointed in her opponents’ exit from the State House Education Committee, who was the only voice on that committee for Canyon County, Mila decided to jump in to help give Canyon County citizens more representation.
Her campaign centers on communication with the people of Canyon County, building relationships to ensure that all humans matter, prioritizing her constituents’ voice above lobbyists or bureaucrats, and safeguarding individual freedoms, private property, and unalienable rights while maintaining a government that functions within its proper purpose and boundaries.
Mila married Randy Wood 32 years ago and they’ve raised two grown young men, Cache and Emry Wood. Mila graduated from ITT Technical Institute, became a cosmetologist before she had children, and then remained home to focus on her children. During that time, she volunteered at school and taught pilates. As her kids grew, she moved on to coaching junior high tennis at Sage Valley and high school tennis at Eagle High, completing her coaching career in 2017 at Middleton High School. Currently she enjoys her position as the Women’s Tennis Assistant Coach at the College of Idaho in Caldwell.
