I hope to help ease the housing and economic pain that Idahoans are feeling. I hope to help bolster our school systems so that all children in Idaho can have access to the quality education they deserve. I hope to help expand and restore healthcare access, including reproductive health care.
I have years of experience on the other side of regulations, working in the federal, state, and local levels of government to help enact the laws that legislatures create. Besides governments, I've also worked for private businesses and nonprofits. I've seen how they can all work well, and sometimes how they don't. I've done volunteer work in the Treasure Valley and talked to all kinds of folks about what they care about and what their problems look like. I've seen what it looks like when governments succeed, and also when they let people down.
The biggest problem facing Idaho today, in my eyes, is the shift of some politicians into extremism, and the way that most of the rest just stand by and go along with it. This is what happens when the government becomes disconnected from the people, when the people have no real choice at the ballot box. I hope to help prevent the worst of the chaos and extreme policies pushed by some. I want to help convince folks who should know better that this isn't what Idahoans want or what they stand for. I hope to work with differing viewpoints to find solutions to real problems that everyone can live with. That's what democracy is supposed to be about, and I want to see it thrive in Idaho again.
I absolutely would support such legislation. The decisions we are talking about are private medical decisions between a doctor and their patient. They must have the freedom to make the decision that's best for the patient's health and for their families.

The current state of affairs in Idaho has done more than just prevent abortion care. It has harmed a wide range of patients with abnormal or dangerous pregnancies, as well as those who have tragically miscarried and urgently need what is technically an abortion procedure. This risks not only the lives and health of patients, but also their ability to have children in the future. Abortion care is healthcare, and all Idahoans deserve quality healthcare.
I truly want to represent my constituents. Not just to beat my chest about whatever I'm personally most passionate about or to parrot talking points I heard on cable news or some podcast. I want to really listen to the folks of Nampa and Idaho, and find out what their actual priorities are, what their real pain is. My job will be to try to find solutions that will pass, that will work, and that the people will be happy with. This won't always be my preferred solution. And it will never be anything but difficult. But democracy is difficult, and messy, and it's also the best system we've ever found. Some folks today have given up on it. I need to do what I can to make sure we hang on to it.
