In District 14, the Senate primary pitted two high profile candidates against one another. Representative Marv Hagedorn (R-Meridian) faced a former lawmaker, Stan Bastian of Eagle. Hagadorn won last night in the primary and will likely take his place as Senator after the November election.
Hagadorn says he wants to build on the tax cuts the legislature passed this year. “So I want to continue on that, work on personal property tax. And try and reduce that burden for business. Cause right now everything is about the economy and jobs. Anything else is noise around that.”
Marv Hagedorn comes from District 20, where he’s been a state Representative for six-years. He’s a 20-year military veteran and also has a background in business.
