Eagle, ID – Today, Raúl Labrador formally announced Milford Terrell as his treasurer for his gubernatorial campaign.
“I am so honored to have Milford serving as my campaign treasurer,” said Raul Labrador. “I’ve always admired Milford and consider him not only a mentor, but a personal friend. His talents as a businessman are second to none, but even more important is his devotion and compassion to serve the less fortunate children in our communities. Milford’s personal story and characteristics embody what my campaign is about – a man who stands on principle, who achieved his dreams as an entrepreneur, and a man committed to doing everything possible to ensure our children have a brighter future. I welcome my friend to the campaign.”
"I'm honored to serve as Raul's campaign treasurer," said Terrell.
