Benjamin Donovan Chafetz

State Senator Legislative District 17

Biography & Background

I have been involved with the Republican party since 2015. I am a passionate supporter of our constitution and a devout Christian. My priorities are God, Family, State and the United States Constitution along with the people it protects.

I have been consistent in my debates, my goals and my actions in preserving people’s right to be free and live by their own means. I believe it is the greatest good to let people make their own moral judgements and not allow the government or corporations to ever take that away. We live in the greatest nation and the greatest State in that nation and there is no reason we should sacrifice that position ever.

I want my children to grow up in a free and prosperous Idaho and if I am elected to our state senate I will strive everyday to ensure that that benchmark is met. Let’s keep Idaho a lovely place to live.

Top 3 Issues:

1. Spending. We absolutely need to get a handle on our spending. We need to lower taxes and we need to stop accepting federal money. There is absolutely no reason why we should be accepting federal money that is hampered with conditions that are unsavory to the people that inhabit this state.
2. Government and Corporate overreach. We cannot allow our schools, businesses and or government to infringe upon the bodily autonomy of our citizens. This is absolutely out of bounds. The constitution and the civil rights act protect us from such acts against our persons. What happened during the “pandemic” must never occur again in our state. We cannot afford it and it did far more damage than we have even witnessed yet.
3. Accountability and Transparency. I promise I will endeavor to answer all questions regarding policy and governance with as much honesty and forthrightness as can be provided. There is no reason that the people of Idaho should ever be in the dark with respect to legislation that occurs in their state.
