I want to continue to create good policy for Idaho. Working with Education, infrastructure, public safety and drug free Idaho.
I have served four years is the Idaho House of Representatives and two years as a Senator. Prior to being a legislator, I served as the Trial Court Administrator for the Fifth Judicial District. Working for the Idaho Supreme Court
Growth in Idaho is huge, and we need a managed growth system. We need to work with local governments in helping them when needed. Water resources are also a significant part of this job. Idaho is an agricultural state, and we need to protect our most precious resource.
I would work toward this goal. The criminal liability is a factor in losing good doctors to other states. Women's health care must be a priority.
I work with all my constituents and believe that parental rights need to be honored at all times. I also am a firm believer in local control. I work with area agencies, and departments in making certain that my constituents have the answers they need and services that are a must. I must represent all of my constituents, not just thought that look like me.
