Top 3 Issues

Issue 1

Pro-Life: I believe that life begins at conception. I believe that every life is precious, valued and should be protected. We need to support the mother and help her see that she is carrying the future. She needs to know she has hope and that ending someone else’s life won’t make her life easier, she will live with that decision the rest of her life. We need to hold the father’s accountable and make them take their seat at the table.

Issue 2

Pro-Limited Government: I believe the government should be a last resort option to solving issues in our state. Government should return back to its original purpose for which it was established. The Idaho and US Constitutions provide these guidelines. Our government is best when it is small and closest to the people.

Issue 3

Lower Taxes: I believe it is the responsibility of state and local government to relieve the burden of taxation on its citizens as much as possible. We must work to lower the continual rise of property taxes amongst the people of Idaho. I have never met a person who is under taxed, but government is consistently over fed.
