Top 3 Issues
I am passionate about Education. I want to give Idaho students greater educational opportunities. My dream is to fill every Idaho job with Idaho Students, who are have the education, skills and training to succeed.
Agriculture is a major contributor to the economics of Idaho. I want to further international exposure for Idaho’s farm products. The proper management of our surface water and aquifer is crucial.
I believe in limiting the growth of government and only passing laws and creating new regulations when absolutely necessary. I believe the free market thrives when governments reduce regulations and allow entrepreneurs to implement the accepted principles of capitalism.
