I am running for State Senator in Idaho’s Legislative District 8. Truth and transparency—two things that are increasingly difficult to find. Politics should not just be about winning. A State Senator …
Right to Life
Life is precious from conception to the grave, and we owe it to those who cannot protect themselves to do everything we can to see they are treated as such.
I am in favor of repealing the grocery tax and reducing the state income taxes. High taxes weaken families and cripple economic growth.
Opportunity for Small Business
Again, lower taxes are key but I am also not a fan of incentives that are offered to businesses which give them an advantage over existing businesses in an area.
The 2nd Amendment is very clearly stated in the Constitution. I support constitutional carry and our rights to defend our families, homes, and businesses from any threats. I also support the castle doctrine expansion (such as HB 444 in 2018) that is being fought for by our freedom-loving members of the legislature.
Local Control for Schools
Parents should have immediate contact with those who are making decisions that affect our children’s education and safety. I would like to see more opportunities for students to excel at their own rate; I would also support an increase in vocational training opportunities in school and would like to see more opportunities for mentorship programs sponsored by local businesses.
The more one is required to do for themselves, the more capable one becomes. The idea of social welfare from cradle to grave with no responsibility for one’s actions weakens our society as a whole and places an unfair burden on hard-working people who are taking responsibility for themselves and their families. I would support requirements for drug testing and training for welfare recipients. That being said there does have to be opportunities for those who truly wish to change their lives and become responsible citizens.
