Issues I’m Running On

I am focusing a large portion of my campaign on education. Visiting school districts across the country has allowed me to understand the core values of our teachers and the necessities that our youth need to make Idaho a competitor in education.

Responsible Leadership

As your representative I will make my votes based on your needs, not someone in Boise.
