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.

The Republican Region 7 Lincoln Day event was a success!! Governor Brad Little was the keynote speaker and spoke on his vision of making Idaho even better. He knows the state well and should be a great leader. We also heard from Sen. Mike Crapo - he spoke on many of the good things happening in Washington DC which you dont hear on the mainstream news media. Lt. Gov. McGeachin, Attorney General Wasden, State Controller Woolf and many local elected leaders were in attendance. Many thanks to the Region 7 Executive Committee for organizing this!Image attachment
