Term (208) 351-3531
I hope to stop extremism in Idaho by focusing on listening to citizens instead of special interest groups. I hope to turn the Idaho Legislature into a body that values public education and other public workers.
I have been the chairperson for Madison County Democrats for the past 2 years. I have been a volunteer for collecting signatures for citizen initiatives since the Medicaid Expansion Act.
Idaho needs to re-elevate public education. We need to bring back respect and gratitude for educators. We need to fund schools in a way that promotes innovation instead of siphoning money away from schools. We need to stop extreme bills that promote government over reach.
Yes. Health decisions should be made between a doctor and a patient. Government interference with professional decisions is Government overreach.
Idaho needs to feel like a safe place for all citizens. When elected officials pass bills that make people feel unsafe, it is an indication that the government is representing special interest groups instead of representing the people. Idaho can do better.
