Why voters should vote for me and my top priorities.

Overreach is occurring in our federal government, but faith in God gives hope for our country and state. I want to serve the citizens of District 7 in the Senate out of a sense of duty, not as a career in politics. My focus is on state sovereignty, private property rights, gun rights, right to life, religious freedom and traditional family values. My desire and goal is restoring the great American dream of “less government, more opportunity” by adhering to our State and Federal Constitutions.

For 6 years now in the Idaho State Senate, I have been battling for our rights, yours and mine. I am proud of the fact I have been defending your rights on the Senate floor in speech and vote, as my voting record shows. I am only running because I love my country, my state, and my people and I am concerned that we may lose our inalienable rights very subtly and slowly. My experience is my trust in my people, my constituents, who have been faithful by informing me, guiding me, and trusting me in my position to represent them in the great state of Idaho.

These principles I apply to my voting.

  1. DEFEND PROPERTY RIGHTS– because that guarantees choice and opportunity. A man has to be able to provide for himself and family to prosper.
  2. RESPECT THE DIGNITY OF THE PERSONall of us are created in the image of God and have certain unalienable rights to lifeAn example I sponsored is the ULTRASOUND BILL which gives people an informed choice, and I also cosponsored IDAHO UNBORN INFANTS DIGNITY ACT.
  3. UPHOLD CONSTITUTIONALITY— An example would be the 2nd amendment, gun rights, in which I cosponsored the CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY BILL.
  4. MAINTAIN 10th AMENDMENT STATE SOVEREIGNTY–Stability and security are needed for a just order for protection—An example I cosponsored is THE LANDS BILL, which allows for multiple use and sustained yield for any land received from the feds.
  5. KEEP CONTROL LOCAL, in other words, the government closest to the situation would make the best judgmentsIdaho should be making the plan for sage grouse or wolves, not the feds.
  6. USE SOLIDARITYWe have an innate need as humans to form societies and communities for the common good—such as helping each other put out firesI sponsored the FOREST ABATEMENT BILL which allows counties to demand that the health, safety and welfare of the people are protected from fires, polluted air and water, and loss of wildlife.
