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.


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.

My eBike Bill H76 was officially signed by Governor Little! This #legislation clarifies electric-assisted bikes are not mopeds or motorcycles and they will follow "rules of the road" for bicycles. #eBikes are a hot new seller for #bicycle shops - if you try one you will like it! 📜🏛🚲 #IDleg #IDpol

Does this have any impact on the prohibition of eBikes on trails or national forests? I'm always for increased access, but the line between bikes and motorcycles is getting blurred.

It’s unfortunate the roads are so terrible in the Boise area that it is extremely unsafe to ride these or any bikes on the roads. Drivers are more worried about dodging pot holes to be on the lookout for bicyclists.
