Nov 10, 2021Former NPC prez Britt Raybould eyes return to Idaho House
Former National Potato Council President Britt Raybould announced Nov. 10 she’s running for a seat in the Idaho House of Representatives in 2022.
Raybould, chief financial officer of Raybould Brothers Farms in Rexburg, Idaho, served a two-year term in the House representing District 34, Seat B, from 2018-2020. She lost a re-election bid to Ron Nate, 3,477-3,183, in November 2020.
“In the coming weeks and months, I’ll make the case that Madison County deserves better from its representative. Our community deserves authentic leadership that will secure our future, a legislator who listens to everyone, and a representative who supports solutions upholding our true conservative values by solving the real problems we face. Doing what’s best for Madison County will always be my priority,” Raybould said via her campaign website.
Raybould served on the National Potato Council’s executive committee for several years, which culminated in her becoming the organization’s first female president in 2020. She won Spudman magazine’s Spudwoman of the Year award that year as well.
Raybould is the third member of her family to serve as NPC president, joining grandfather, Dell Raybould, and father, Jeff Raybould. Dell Raybould was a member of the Idaho House from 2000-2018, at which time he retired.
