Idaho Freedom Foundation President Wayne Hoffman announced Thursday his organization will open a new office in Idaho Falls to expand the fight for liberty and better promote free market solutions.
“This is an exciting step for our growing organization,” Hoffman said. “With this office, we will have additional capacity to hold public officials accountable. We will also be better equipped to provide sensible answers to policy-makers dedicated to wise governance.”
Lindsay Russell Dexter, an Idaho Falls native, will lead the foundation’s Eastern Idaho efforts. She previously worked for the American Legislative Exchange Council and directed the group’s Task Force on Education and Workforce Development.
“I’m ready to put my shoulder to the wheel and offer innovative ideas to solve Idaho’s most difficult problems, including preparing the next generation for the modern workplace,” she said.
Dexter Russell, a graduate of the College of Idaho in Caldwell, will serve as the foundation’s Senior Director of Policy and Eastern Idaho Field Officer.
“Lindsay’s expertise adds tremendous value for our organization, but also gives Idaho kids an advocate for smart education policies,” Hoffman said.
The Idaho Freedom Foundation is a nonpartisan educational research institute and government watchdog dedicated to improving the lives of Idahoans by promoting free market solutions, holding public servants accountable, exposing government waste and corruption and promoting policies that advance Idaho’s independence.
