Senator Carl Crabtree is a Republican representing District 7 in the Idaho Legislature. District 7 includes all of Idaho, Clearwater and Shoshone Counties, as well as part of Bonner County. Carl has spent his life in both private business and government service. He and his wife, Carolyn, have a registered beef cattle business and small livestock trucking business. Carl’s experience in business has taught him just how hard it is to make a dollar. This knowledge, combined with experience seeing government waste, encouraged him to seek a seat in the Idaho Senate where he is committed to making a difference for the people of District 7 and the State of Idaho.
