I will finish my second term in the Idaho House of Representatives at the end of 2022, or four years. Prior to that, I served the beef industry from a local to a national level on ag and natural resource policies. I was President of the Idaho Cattle Association and Chairman of the Idaho Beef Council; I am a lifetime Leadership Idaho Ag Affiliate; we raised our two children on our family's century farm and ranch; I worked with the Idaho Foodbank as the Beef Counts and food resource coordinator; I am a past Pres. of the Jerome Rotary. Currently, I serve on the Gov. appointed Idaho Behavioral Health Council, Vice Chair of House Resources and Conservation, NW Pacific Fisheries Board, the Idaho Power's Integrated Resource Planning Council.
Growth and inflation will be our two bigger challenges in the next few years. Idaho has prepared herself with help from the Governor and the legislature to navigate the good times and the poorer times. We have put record resources into paying off long-term debt and bonds; we will take care of deferred maintenance on buildings, roads, and bridges; we will work to identify housing needs; water infrastructure and storage support. We will set appropriate money aside for budget stabilization, and give back tax monies as is prudent. We will see added pressures on our public lands and access. As Vice Chairman of Resources and Conservation, I have a seat at that table to coordinate and collaborate solutions.
I am solutions oriented and work collectively, collaboratively, cooperatively, and civilly with a diverse group of stakeholders from our cities, counties, and various water users, to our health and welfare providers, parents, constituents, educators, and industry organizations to make the fairest and most thoughtful decisions. Our rural communities matter, and I look forward to developing the same great relationships in my new legislation district. #LickleyforSenate
