I am running because I have seen firsthand how the left’s socialist, tax and spend ideology has destroyed cities and our culture. I see the same destructive, socialist policies at work here in Idaho. I took an oath to uphold the US Constitution and the rule of law. When I retired from the Sheriff’s Office and moved to my home in Sagle, Idaho; I realized that I could not sit back and watch the Idaho I knew as a young boy become a carbon copy of California, Oregon, and Washington.
I owned and operated a successful construction business before starting a career as a Deputy Sheriff. As a Senior Deputy, I was a senior training instructor responsible for training all new officers, specializing in training firearms, self-defense, search and seizure law, constitutional law, and field operations for new patrol officers. I am a constitutional conservative and committed Christian. I believe in the rule of law. I support ALL the Bill of Rights, including, but not limited to, freedom of speech, freedom of religion and the right to keep and bear arms.
I began a career in law enforcement to help those people who could not help themselves, to give a voice to those who were too victimized to advocate for themselves. I am very effective in conflict resolution, and I worked to hold those individuals, who caused harm to others, accountable for their actions through the judicial system. My knowledge and experience in the judicial system has prepared me well for representing Idahoans in the legislature.
I am the right person to hold the position of Idaho State Representative of District 1A. I believe in free market capitalism, limited government regulation, and effective public safety. I am a strong voice to safeguard our vast natural resources and recreational areas within Idaho. I believe that the path to a stronger Idaho is through education reform, tax reduction and stabilization, and school choice.
I will fight for Idahoan’s freedom. I will fight to eliminate the federal government’s control of Idaho’s land and natural resources to return the land to state control for use in creating new job opportunities for Idahoans and reduce the effective tax burden for many Idahoans.
