Top 3 Issues

Issue 1

Taxes – Idahoans are being overtaxed even though there is $1B+ in state surplus money. We need property tax relief and to eliminate the grocery tax.

Issue 2

Government Overreach – the decision making by our current administration is against the best interest of Idahoans. We need to ensure freedom of choice regarding pandemics/health emergencies.

Issue 3

Marxism in our schools – Critical Race Theory is finding its way into our schools and libraries. We need legislators that will vote to protect our kids from socialist agendas.
