Issues

EDUCATION
Idaho’s public schools should be accountable to parents and taxpayers. School funding is the top priority.

WATER
Protection of the Snake River Aquifer and surface water is critical to the economic health of Southeast Idaho. I will keep fighting to protect and conserve this most precious resource.

STATE BUDGET
No one ever spends themselves into prosperity. Fiscal responsibility demands frugal use of tax dollars as state budgets are set.

IDAHO SOVEREIGNTY
I will continue the fight to prevent federal infringement and intrusion into Idaho.

PUBLIC LANDS
Long term solutions balancing our human needs (good jobs & recreation) with wildlife must be negotiated into law. Grazing on federal & state land needs to remain strong in Idaho.

IDAHO NATIONAL LAB
Safe development of nuclear generated electricity is essential for Idaho. Funding and support should be sought to provide well-paying INL jobs that will lead to cheap power.

FAMILY
I believe in the traditional family that consists of one father and one mother that provides a safe environment for teaching and nurturing children. Idahoan values, dreams, and goals are simple and basic: a loving family, a rewarding job the provides for the family, a good education, good health, and pride in our community and country.
