I believe in the people of Idaho and want to keep Idaho the great state that it is. I think as we move ahead, we need to continue to look forward and have long-range plans that will help us continue to strengthen our education system in Idaho, making sure parents, students and teacher feel supported by our policies. I also think as the fastest growing state we need to plan well for our infrastructure--making sure we have good roads and bridges to support the growing population. I also want to help us balance our agricultural roots with business and technology sectors. As we move forward, we have to continue to be fiscally conservative and maintain our balanced budget. All of these things will keep Idaho the state we know and love.
I have been an active member of our community for many years--from being the director of the CSI Music Fest (camp for young musicians), bringing family entertainment to our community through the BYU Alumni Association, serving on the Kimberly Schools Foundation and chairing our annual fundraiser, to being an active part of both the Twin Falls County Republicans and the Idaho GOP State Central Committee. Through these experiences I have been able to contribute to our community, but I have also met and talked with many people and interacted with policy makers throughout our state. I have asked questions, listened to others' experiences and been mentored and prepared for this opportunity.
I believe people who live here--whether as long-time residents or as recent move-ins--live here because they love Idaho and our conservative values, our hard work ethic and our beautiful land. I think there is a constant pull to spend more, to grow government and to forget our roots. I believe I have skills of learning from the past but planning and looking ahead to the future and asking questions such as "How will this affect us down the road?" I believe asking this question helps us move forward in positive ways and we can keep growing and succeeding as a state while preserving our values that make us who we are as a state--those values of hard work, fiscal conservatism and small government.
I work hard in everything I do. It will be no different as I serve as your State Representative. I look forward to serving the people of Legislative District 24 and continuing to work with you to make Idaho the best it can be.
