Responsible Leadership

Representing Madison & Bonneville Counties

After serving 2 years in the Idaho House of Representatives, I am running for Senate.

“I love the people of East Idaho and the surroundings we enjoy. This is a great place to live and raise a family,” said Ricks during his announcement speech. “Because of this and my desire to serve my community, I am formally announcing my candidacy for Idaho Senate District 34.”

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.

Improving
Education

Education is a priority if we are to keep our kids from leaving the area.

Economic Development

We need to think and do things differently if we are to attract quality employers.

Responsible Leadership

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

In an unanticipated move yesterday, Governor Little vetoed my House Bill 384a

In an unanticipated move yesterday, Governor Little vetoed my House Bill 384a - the Idaho Wrongful Conviction Act. This bill passed both the House and the Senate with only one no vote. I am shocked and disappointed the Governor took this action based on the overwhelming support from legislators and the general public. Because of the Governor's veto, Idaho will remain

A DAY OF REMEMBRANCE !!  Memorial Day, was inaugurated in 1868. It was previously designated Decoration Day, for the purpose of decorating the graves of Civil War veterans. Memorial Day has since become a day on which all war dead are commemorated. On Memorial Day, we remember those among us and those who have gone before, who secured for us the precious freedoms that we enjoy today. It is a day to once again acknowledge the price for which  our freedom was purchased--a cost beyond measure. 
Let us consider briefly the price that has been paid for us to breathe the air of a new morning, to assemble in the park to enjoy a summer concert, to attend worship services in the church of our choice, and to dream the American dream without limitations.  Then, let us pause to remember those who have cultivated and tended our land of freedom--with their courage, their tears, their blood and their very lives. 
Our fallen heroes still whisper to us from the grave.  If we listen carefully, even today, we can hear the muffled sounds of their call to arms in defense of our nation.  This same spirit of freedom is carried in the wind and echoes down through the ages.  It is everywhere you look.  It can be found in the voices of our children playing in the school yards, in the bountiful goods offered for sale in privately owned places of commerce within our community and in the faces of our citizens in polling places on Election Day. 
This spirit can be found in abundance in every corner of every community in this great nation of ours.  For this spirit is like an eternal flame.  It was lit by the courage and blood of our founding fathers, fanned by the winds of patriots to a brightness beyond description, and then sheltered and protected by members of our Armed Forces from the storms of tyrants and dictators who feared and were blinded by the intense light of liberty and freedom. 
Our heartfelt prayers and thanks go out to all of those brave men and women who have stepped forward without hesitation to serve our nation so valiantly in its time of need.  These are the qualities that heroes are made of.  They are the same qualities that made and have kept America great and free since our founding fathers landed at Plymouth Rock, dedicating their lives to raising up a great republic that would forever be a beacon of freedom to the entire world. We are the land of the free because we are the home of the brave.  Warm Regards,  Bob Jones
