To bring the voice of working people in Idaho to our state Capitol. I interact with working people every workday, this gives me a clear understanding of the struggle Idahoans face on a day-to-day basis in our state. I will listen to their needs and speak their voice. I will support our public school system in every way that I can including making sure that all contractors that are chosen to work in our schools meet a high performance-based standard, and prove that they perform jobs on time, on budget, and safely. Our schools prepare our future and they must be built and maintained at the highest standards to protect our children.
As a construction and maintenance electrician, I am with other working people every day. I hear their stories and see how they struggle to support their families. I hear about their disappointment in government representatives, this gives me insight into what is expected and needed from elected officials. Being elected and serving as a union officer has given me the leadership experience that I believe is necessary as a state representative.
Rising housing costs and Idaho’s increasing cost of living are important to the people that I work with, this can be influenced by the legislature. Issues like public schools having full-time pre-K programs can help working families along with increasing the child tax credit for those needing help with child care are ways that state government can help the nearly 1 million Idahoans living in the Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed category where a paycheck does not go far enough.
We need to return the balance to our state government. Our current state of partisanship allows the creation of legislation that does nothing to address the economic and growth issues that Idaho faces today and in our future.
