We are proud to endorse and support Dr. Kim Keller for the Idaho Legislature. Dr. Keller provides a strong business and public health background Idaho needs now more than ever. He further understands how important Idaho Dairy is to the entire Idaho economy.

I am proud to support and endorse Kim Keller to be the next District 13 Seat B Idaho State Representative. I have had the honor to serve in Nampa and Canyon County as a city councilman, mayor, and county commissioner. During this time Kim has been actively engaged in the community and genuinely cares for others. Kim is kind, honest, fair, reliable, and generous.
Kim Keller has served on several boards and in several capacities. One of those is a faith based non-profit called Serve for Health that Kim started in conjunction with the Nampa Ministerial Association. Kim set this up to work with dentist in the area to provide free dental care for residence that may not be able to afford it but are willing to provide service. This is just one example of Kim seeing a need in the community and helping to address that need. Kim tirelessly looks for opportunities to serve those around him and when he says he will get something done you can count on him to do just that.
As a small business owner, Kim understands the challenges that face businesses and impacts that government overreach and regulation can have on those businesses. He is a strong conservative that will work to protect small business, push for smaller government, lower taxes, and simply protect the Idaho way of life. Kim Keller loves God, his family, his community, and country. As a veteran, Canyon County Commissioner, and resident of Nampa I am proud to support Kim Keller.
Tom Dale, Canyon County Commissioner, Nampa
I can think of no individual that has given back more to their community than Kim Keller. Whether it be as a successful businessman and employer, an entrepreneur, a health care provider, or founder of a local non-profit service organization, Kim Keller makes our community a better place to live. He understands the role of government, business, faith institutions and service organizations, because he has been there himself. He not only talks the talk, he walks the walk. For this and many other reasons, I enthusiastically support and endorse my friend, Dr. Kim B. Keller in his bid for House Seat .
I support Dr. Kim Keller for District 13 (Nampa) House of Representatives. Good man from Nampa and a good man for Idaho.
Victor Rodriguez, Councilman City of Nampa
Thank you, Candidates of House District 13b!!
I would like to thank the candidates that are running for State House, District 13b. Thank you, Randy, for your involvement in the community. Thank you, Ben, for your military service. Thank you, Kenny, for all of your volunteer work that means so much. Thank you, Kim Keller, for your leadership and vision plus all you have given back to the community. Having made a decision to run for the House, I am sure it was hard and time-consuming. Saying that I want to wholeheartedly endorse Kim Keller for our next House member for District 13b. What sets Kim apart is HIS actual experience in business, vision, and major leadership roles in his church and community. Kim will listen to individuals to understand the issues and concerns of each of us and then make an informed decision. His experience as a businessman has taught him the need to work for a common solution. With employees that he takes a true interest in, plus giving back to the community in so many ways, and being a God-loving family man, make Kim Keller the only logical choice to represent our interests. Idaho and District 13b can’t go wrong. Vote Kim Keller!!

Keller for State House
Kim Keller stands head and shoulders above his competition in the race for Seat 13B in the Idaho State House of Representatives.
In the three years I served with Kim on the Nampa Public Library Board, we faced tough decisions. Before he votes, Kim does his homework and asks informed questions. He looks at all sides of an issue, thinks through pros and cons, prepares reasonable proposals for action, and in a civil way, works to bring consensus. Kim listens to everyone respectfully. All Idahoans would be blessed if he was elected and applied these skills in the Idaho House.
Kim is a multi-tasker. His concerns include his small business, Nampa Smiles Dentistry; his wife and three children; lifetime education—he will receive his MBA from Northwest Nazarene University this month; and community causes including the Nampa Schools Foundation, Nampa Ministerial Association, the Southwest District Health Collaborative Team, and Learning Peace Camp. In all of these, he doesn’t show up only on “picture day.” He attends meetings, helps on committees, and works to solve problems.
He “walks the walk,” putting the weight of his caring heart and pocketbook behind good causes. Few people have given as much service as Kim and his associates do on “Shareen Keller Day,” their annual Mother’s Day giveaway of dental services to low-income women. He helps fund a scholarship program for eighth graders. He believes people should be self-reliant, yet understands the need to give a hand up, and thus is part of “Serve For Health,” a 501c3 that gives free dental service to people who serve in the community.
We need Kim’s listening, caring, and can-do attitude in the Idaho legislature.
Please vote for Kim rather than Ben Adams, Kenny Wroten or Randy Jackson for Seat 13B.
Debra Holm, Nampa
We have known Kim for the last four years as members of the steering committee for Learning Peace; a Camp for Kids. Kim has been instrumental in the development of this free summer day camp. His energy and thoughtfulness towards Nampa’s youth is evident in each meeting. In addition to Learning Peace, Kim and his brothers have built Mettle Sports, a facility to offer youth recreational opportunities. It’s evident from these investments that Kim supports the youth of Nampa, and we support Kim. Vote for our youth and vote for Kim Keller for State Representative on your Republican absentee ballot.
Michael & Candi Ciscell, Nampa
This as a recommendation for Kim Keller who is running as a candidate for State Representative. I have worked with Kim for several years on the Nampa Ministerial Association and Serve for Health. While a member of the Nampa Ministerial Association Kim has served in a variety of leadership positions. The main thrust of the Nampa Ministerial Association is to help facilitate and participate in a variety of services within the community. Kim has excellent connections with community leaders and has his finger on the pulse of the needs of Nampa. Serve for Health is a not-for-profit organization that provides dental care for individuals in financial need who do not have insurance. The main idea is that individuals receive dental care in response for community service they provide; it is a hand-up rather than a hand-out approach. Individuals assist in their own care by serving in a variety of service agencies. Kim is the driving force, innovator, and chair of this organization made up of community volunteers. He has enlisted the help of local dentists to assist in this program. Kim is a leader in his local church community where he has served in many capacities and has provided excellent leadership. Kim is easy to work with, is a gifted leader, and is an excellent communicator. He is creative and entrepreneurial. He has great vision for Nampa and the State of Idaho. I highly recommend Kim and endorse his candidacy to serve in this position for the State of Idaho. Kim will provide ethical and clear headed leadership. Your vote for him will send a highly qualified individual to represent you at the state level.
Gary Waller, Nampa
Recently, I read a letter to the editor critiquing Kim Keller who is running for District 13 State Representative. The letter suggested Kim is not “conservative enough” to serve in the Idaho legislature as he may be flawed by a possible liberal streak. As a friend who has worked beside Kim in a number of community oriented efforts, I would like to comment: The key word in Idaho state politics from anyone that wants to be in our state government Is the proud proclamation, “I am running for the Idaho legislature, and I am a conservative!” Conservative is a self-limiting word that can smother open ended consideration of alternative reflection and sensitivity. It is a term that can become close mindedness, self-righteous and self-justifying. I have benefitted personally working with Kim on community efforts and have been impressed with his integrity. I suspect he has some faults but I suspect only his wife and children would be able to clarify what those might be as would my own wife about me. But in what I have experience in Kim is what I would like to see in our state conversation, a balanced consideration of the issues of justice for us all. I have experienced him as someone who is able to take into consideration issues that might be uncomfortable from his perspective, but he has the willingness to listen and consider the other side. I’m voting for him.

I’d like to endorse Kim Keller as Idaho State Representative, District 13. Many years ago, Kim offered to give me a ride to our local dental society meeting. I was new to the area and had just started my own dental practice. On the way home he asked how my practice was doing. I mentioned numerous problems that I had with starting a business. Kim then shared with me numerous solutions to my concerns that had proved successful in his office. I wondered, “Why is this guy sharing information with me? Doesn’t he view me as a competitor in the same community?” I soon realized why Kim is a successful businessman and is so well-respected. It’s because he gains great satisfaction from the success of others around him in his community.
Kim is a dedicated husband and father. Our children participate in some of the same activities, so I have seen him serve our community as an UNPAID volunteer in numerous capacities. Kim volunteered as the emcee for the Idaho Open Fiddle Contest. He and his wife, Sheree, have welcomed exchange students into their home from the countries of Italy and Brazil. Kim served as bishop of his ward for 5 years, and continues to serve as a counselor in the Nampa South Stake Presidency.
Kim served the dental community as president of Western Treasure Valley Dental Society, and later as a Trustee for the dental society. He instigated “Serve For Health,” a volunteer organization of dentists, pastors, and community members who coordinate dental services to individuals who are willing to provide community service in exchange for free dental care. He participates in “Free Dental Day” every year before Mother’s Day.
We need more people like Kim Keller in public office! He will be great asset to the Idaho Legislature.
Shaun Christensen, Nampa
Thank you to Representative Gary Collins for representing District 13 so well and congratulations on the retirement. Now we need to decide who will step into that role and continue to represent District 13 and I believe Kim Keller is the best person for this. As I look at who to consider I want someone that is service oriented, has integrity, kind, a small business owner, and listens to people when they come to them with ideas or issues. Kim Keller is the right person to be our next District 13 Seat B State Representative.
We are facing challenges that we have not faced. There are 100,000 people out of work in Idaho. We need someone that understands what our small businesses are going through. Kim Keller is a small business owner and like everyone else trying to make sure that his staff is getting paid and that they can weather the storm. Kim cares about his employees and their families and it shows.
I want someone that follows the rules, not when it is just convenient, but all of the time. Nampa has a city ordinance that states campaign signs must not be in public right of ways (this includes putting them next to every stop sign at intersections) and if you put them on private property you need to get permission from the land owner.
Kim Keller is a Conservative Republican that was taught all throughout his life what the proper role of government is and that it is better closest to the people. He will work to get Idahoans back to work, protect the 2nd amendment, protect small business, lower taxes, and be smarter about education. He loves God, his family, Nampa, Idaho, and the country. Vote for a proven leader, vote Kim Keller.
Jay Madison, Nampa
I consider it a great privilege to call Dr. Kim Keller my friend. I write to wholeheartedly endorse his candidacy for Idaho State Representative, Legislative District 13, Position B.
We are living in historic times; times which require historic leadership. Over the past fifteen years, I have enjoyed the opportunity to work closely with Kim in many different volunteer settings. One common observation I have made during that time is that Dr. Keller has an uncommon ability to see past the fog and the irrelevant and to quickly identify not only the heart of a problem, but, invariably, a path toward its solution. He has a rare gift to lead by example, and to bring out the best in those around him. These attributes will serve him well in the legislature – and will bless the lives of all Idahoans.
If you are unfamiliar with Kim’s many accomplishments, and the many ways in which he has served our community, I would encourage you to visit his website. But, more importantly, I know him to be a keenly intelligent and unselfish leader of integrity and principle. To paraphrase words first used to describe another hero of mine, I would offer: “To those who suggest that one must compromise one’s values to succeed in the hard-nosed world of business – I commend the name of Dr. Kim Keller. To those who say that ‘connections’ are more important than commitment, I commend the name of Dr. Kim Keller. To those who say that they lack the time for family and profession and Church and community, I commend the name of Dr. Kim Keller.
Please join with me in happily voting for Dr. Kim Keller, and don’t forget to visit IdahoVotes.gov to request your absentee ballot!
Aaron Seable, Nampa
Citizens of the state of Idaho, and everywhere in this great nations, are all looking for honest people with great integrity to be our elected representatives. Kim Keller is that kind of person!
I have known Kim Keller for a number of years. As my background and career has been in Veterinary Medicine, that has allowed me to more accurately appreciate Kim’s medical dental skills; however, being a good dentist does not necessarily qualify him to be a good representative for the people of Idaho. Kim Keller is simply a very upright and noble person, who is honest and reliable. He has been heavily involved in the community of Nampa for many years. When he commits to do something, he does all in his power to see that it gets done – and done well!
Kim will honor correct principles, and stand up for our freedoms, which make our day-to-day living better. I have watched Kim and his wife raise a loving family through their good examples of kindness and compassion, while teaching their children these same principles of honesty and integrity, as well as the desire to work to get any task done.
I fully trust Kim Keller; what you see is what you get. He is a man of honor that sees a vision for our State of Idaho, and who will fight for our individual freedoms. Please vote for Kim Keller, State Representative.
Eugene R. Borman, DVM, MS
I am endorsing Kim Keller for the State Representative position in District 13. I serve on the board of Serve for Health, a faith based, non-profit organization Dr. Keller founded which provides free dental services for those without resources. He truly practices what he preaches in caring for the welfare of others. He is aware of the issue of economic recovery facing our community. He understands the challenges of business and health care. I find him willing to listen to opposing views and makes use of collaboration in problem solving.
Pat Kissell, Resident of District 13
Kim Keller is a natural leader, successful business owner and engaged citizen. In my 34 years of service in the military, Kim stands out as an innovative influencer who is gifted in connecting with people and affecting change. Idaho’s District-13 needs Kim’s talents, ideas and community advocacy in our state legislative process. I fully endorse this outstanding candidate!
Dan Lister, Nampa
We are the Root family and we are in support of Kim Keller for State Representative. We met Kim over 20 years ago as he was a member of our church, and we quickly became friends. Our family has been blessed by the Keller family on many levels, and as a Veteran family, we are proud of Kim’s love for his faith, city, his work family, and the country we live in. Kim excels as a small business owner, and strives to continue to enrich his education. He has grown up in this community and his generosity can be found in many ways throughout the city of Nampa, Kim is honest, fair, and is candid about who he is and what he believes. It has been a privilege to know Kim over the years, and this Veteran family is proud to endorse him in this role.
