Dustin Manwaring was born and raised in Blackfoot and has lived and practiced law in Pocatello as a business and intellectual property attorney since 2011. Over the last five years his law practice has grown into a very busy boutique firm serving many clients in both California and Idaho where he is licensed.

Manwaring has strong Idaho roots, returning seven years ago after attending undergraduate at University of Utah and law school at Drake University in Iowa. During law school, Manwaring worked for Mitt Romney’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns. He also served as the undersecretary of election day operations for the Republican Party of Iowa and worked as a law clerk for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.  

Prior to that Manwaring worked for Utah-based SkyWest Airlines, working his way up from a ramp agent to a manager of more than 100 agents, 8 supervisors, and over 150 flights a day at the Salt Lake City International Airport.  His education, work and management experience have given him the opportunity to live in and travel to several different states and visit more than 15 foreign countries in the past 10 years which has given him a broad perspective and knowledge for a new generation of leaders that he believes voters are looking for. 

Dustin Manwaring is "ready to lead."
