creating strong communities that have local control

supporting our agricultural base –– from our farms to our food processing industries

focusing on our water issues

creating education pathways for our future generations to become innovators, leaders, and skilled employees 

and most importantly, using common sense, respect, and integrity when approaching challenges. 

Preserving the Idaho way of life while ensuring it’s poised for a sustainable and vibrant future comes down to a few things:

A Vibrant Future Starts With Getting Back to Basics

“Jack Nelsen is a third generation Idaho farmer and has a long history of advancing education in Idaho. His service to Idaho is why he will be a great legislator and common-sense conservative. Idahoans in District 26 are lucky to have someone with Jack’s experience running to represent the most pressing needs of Idahoans. I am proud to endorse Jack Nelsen and encourage you to vote for him.”
-Former Governor Butch Otter


I'm also a believer in working together as a state to move Idaho forward while still preserving the things we love most. 

As a College of Southern Idaho Board Member, I see the value of promoting and creating more opportunities for our youth to access the incredible education and workforce development programs, and to support our schools to foster curiosity and innovation in our future leaders. 

Idaho needs leaders with a common sense approach to challenging issues, a commitment to integrity, and most of all, leaders who respect their constituents, their fellow legislators, and the future generations who will inherit this great state from us.

As a 3rd generation farmer with more than 20 years of experience as a Jerome Planning and Zoning Commissioner, I'm a firm believer in preserving the Idaho we love with integrity while setting this state up for a solid future. 

I'm passionate about local control because I believe communities know their needs best - especially when it comes to protecting their water, agricultural land, and education needs.

I love Idaho because of our incredible recreation opportunities, our access to water and our agricultural and food processing industries.

But most of all, I love our communities.

I'm Jack Nelsen, your candidate for the Idaho House of Representatives District 26B 

Our farmers, dairymen, ranchers, and industry agricultural companies are connected to Idaho's continued success. 
I believe in preserving our agricultural land, supporting workforce development, and focusing on water and transportation accessibility. 

Support Our Ag Communities


the common sense approach

The Foundation of Idaho is You 

The future of Idaho depends on the leaders of today supporting quality education options from early childhood education to post-graduation. 

I believe in supporting workforce development and training options, local control for our school districts, and finding ways to connect youth to options that will prepare them with career skills quickly and efficiently.  

Empower Our Youth


Water is the lifeblood of Idaho allowing for our strong economy, recreation, and agriculture. 

I believe in preserving and protecting our water by empowering local control options to manage their water resources for a sustainable future. 

Protect Our Water
