I will fight to protect your right to work and provide for your family regardless of your choice about getting the covid vaccine.
No Vaccine mandate--people shouldn’t have to choose between the covid vaccine or their job.
Instead of fighting over vaccines, we should invest our resources in making therapeutics widely accessible. We must use all available medical tools to treat people who contract covid.
I will support legislation to keep critical race theory, which teaches that some people are oppresors and others are victims based on their race-out of our schools.
In Idaho we respect all people and must never divide our children based on the color of their skin.
We know that each person is created in God’s image with dignity and a unique purpose.
Our schools must continue to equip our children with the skills they need to fulfill their purpose.
School Choice—parents should be empowered to choose the best education options for their children. As your legislator, I will support school choice so that our children will have the best educational opportunities: public and private schools, charter schools, home school—so they can reach their full potential.
Expand Public Charter Schools—I served as School Board Treasurer of a public charter school. Public charter schools are a great option for many Idaho families; I support giving charter schools equal funding opportunities to continue their important work.
Parental Bill of Rights—I will support legislation that ensures parents always have the right to know what is being taught to their children. We have seen many liberal states hijack schools with anti-American curriculum. Parents should always have a say in what is being taught to their children.
Promote Vocational Technical Training-There is demand for skilled labor to fill the high paying jobs available in our area. Our kids should have the most career options available so that they can stay here in Idaho and raise their families. Technical training through our high schools and community colleges offers skilled labor training that leads to well-paying jobs. As your legislator, I will support expanding training for these high demand careers.
Rapidly rising home values are endangering some with excessive property tax bills. I support reforming property tax to secure your home from high taxes. I believe we can reduce property taxes and maintain sufficient municipal funding.
With Joe Biden Inflation already eating away at our hard-earned dollars, it’s way past time to give relief to Idaho families by eliminating the grocery tax.
My opponent in the Republican primary voted in 2018 against ending the grocery tax. His voting record is full of taxing and spending. He lost re-election in 2018.
As your legislator, I will always work to protect small businesses and ensure a level playing field.
Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, providing many jobs. During the Covid lockdowns, small businesses were ordered to close while politically well-connected big businesses were deemed “essential” and allowed to remain open.
My family owns a small business in Filer---all businesses are ESSENTIAL to the hard-working folks who rely on them to feed their families.
As your legislator, I will support infrastructure funding to protect our water supply; and I will always fight to protect your land and water rights.
I support investments to improve our water recharge efforts and protect our most valuable resource: water. To conserve the water we have, I support raising the level of our dams, and improving irrigation canals with better lining and automation. Estimates are that we can save up to 40% of surface water through lining the canals and automating water gates.
I spent over a decade working in agriculture. My family owns an orchard in Filer. I know firsthand how important Ag is to our economy. From potatoes, beans and grains, to trout, ranching and dairy—Idaho feeds the nation and world with our agricultural goods.
As your legislator, I will always support life.
The US Supreme Court is poised to return to the states the ability to protect the unborn from abortion. However, as we saw in Georgia, liberal big business lobbyists will pressure states to ignore the will of the people and keep abortion on the books.
As your legislator, I will not be bullied by outside lobbyists and threats—I will support life.
As your legislator, I will always support our constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
Liberals in Washington DC are always working to undermine our gun rights. We need legislators who will stand firm against any attempt by any government agency to curb our right to bear arms.
It's our Constitutional right and I will always fight to protect it.
As your legislator, I will not waste Idaho's budget surplus by expanding the size and scope of government.
Surpluses should first be returned to the tax payer--and never to expand government bureaucracy.
Idaho is on track to spend $4 Billion on Medicaid-that's more than the $3.3 Billion proposed for public schools. Medicaid is a ticking time bomb that can blow up our budget and lead to future tax burdens for hard working Idaho residents. I will push for common sense cost controls and work requirements for young able-bodied adults.
