Transparent and Inclusive Government
The proper role of government is to be limited, sensible, transparent, and accountable to the people first. Free from conflict of interest or kickbacks, our elected officials are obligated to expose dishonesty, waste, and laziness in our government operations. Integrity in representation begins with integrity in a candidate’s election campaigns. Unlike my opponent, I am not sponsored by any corporations or special interest groups, my entire election campaign is 100% fully people funded. My average contribution is $25, and I refuse to accept any PAC, realtor's association, corporate or any special interest lobby money.
Affordable Housing and Taxes
As Idaho's housing market continues to grow rapidly, locals are priced out of the market left truggling to find afford housing. Inflation, the rising cost of living, rising cost of production and doing business is affecting everyone. There has never been a more urgent time for State government to lower taxes and be most efficient and most sensible with spending.
Legalization of Medical Marijuana
A healthy Idaho begins with healthy Idaho families and individuals. We are ignoring the biggest threat to public health and safety in our State. The meth and opioid epidemic is spreading and destroying families in our community. Addiction and overdose affect families from all incomes, political, ethnic, and religious backgrounds in Idaho. This is not a political issue, this is a livelihood issue. I absolutely support the legalization of medical marijuana in Idaho as freedom to choose and healthcare access for patients seeking alternative treatment to addictive opioids.
Resource Impact & Regional Development
Idaho's natural resources aren't infinite. Our natural resources are the backbone of our culture and livelihood in southern Idaho. Common sense development and policies will ensure our farmers, businesses and communities will prosper while also preserving adequate water supplies, healthy soil, and habitat for our iconic wildlife.
Equality and Integrity in Representation
Every person deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. The heritage and history of Idaho and the Magic Valley region includes settlers, migrants, and immigrants from all backgrounds. Historically, our elected officials have represented a limited demographic. Idaho has a growing diversity of people from many backgrounds seeking to have an impact, and most importantly feel represented in our State's government.
Supporting Small Business
Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and are promoters of our unique community culture & traditions. As a small business owner and small-scale manufacturer, I am integrated into understand how government can support small businesses in succeeding or slow down progress with excessive and overreaching regulations.
