Bryan Scholz

State Senator Legislative District 33

Biography & Background

Born in CA I lived, worked and started a family in Europe until we decided to come back to the US and make Idaho Falls our home. Proud husband, father of three, homeowner, I am someone who, like you, cares deeply about our State and Country.

I am not a politician and have never held elected office. Son of an architect and a nurse, I worked my way through college. I have extensive technical experience in media and IT. I’ve started companies. I’ve lived and worked extensively abroad.

Top 3 Issues:

1. Medical Freedom – Liberty isn’t just medical freedom, but it should be clear that without medical freedom, there is no liberty. And of the many aspects of our liberty under assault in these chaotic last two years, that particular assault on our liberty has been the most overt. Many people were fired or forced into early retirement at the INL for not taking the experimental gene therapy they call a vaccine. Even those that submitted exemptions were forced to beg for their right to bodily autonomy. The rest were forced to take the jab to feed their families. Same for all the local medical workers. All this against the backdrop of a massive coordinated effort to suppress any discussion of alternative treatments for covid or any of the many side effects of the vaccine, for which the producers have all been shielded from liability. As of this April 8th there are 2,096,166 REPORTS OF VACCINE ADVERSE EVENTS IN VAERS. These include 26,976 COVID Vaccine Reported Deaths. Because VAERS data is known to be underreported, this is most likely the tip of the iceberg. There was really no informed consent. East Idaho has escaped the insanity better than most places, but even if some places have rolled back some of the mandates, some countries still have strict vaccine controls in place. Many States have implemented vaccine passports which lay the foundation for a Chinese style social credit system. The Federal government still has vaccine mandates in place. This fight is far from over.
2. Election Integrity – I head the South East Chapter for Election Integrity Idaho. We have the duel aim of investigating the 2020 election and securing future elections. It should be clear to anyone that looks into it that there were massive irregularities in the 2020 election as well as many elections around the States in these last years. Incentives to control election outcomes are powerful. The core problem for our fragile elections framework is secrecy: withholding from the public the evidence needed to authenticate whether results are true. We need elections that are both secure and designed to be audited.
3. Education Freedom – Liberty isn’t just about education freedom, but it became brutally clear these last two years that if we lose control of the education of our children, we will not remain a free people. Our public schools are to a great extent run by left-wingers and Marxists that really don’t share our values. They are far more interested in teaching some variation of CRT than the value of Western Civilization. I’m sure, especially in Idaho, that there are still a many great teachers who share our values, but the cards are stacked against them. The unions have a stranglehold on the public schools and the average school teacher, even in Idaho, leans much farther to the left than the majority of citizens. This became apparent during the corona mandates as parents not only saw what their children were being taught online, but the massive overreaction to corona. It seems like teachers and administrators either didn’t want to return to the classroom, or if and when they did, they wanted to force kids to wear masks all day long. If you tried to complain, or point out the flaws in the scientific reasoning of such measures, school boards simply disparaged or ignored you. Empowering parents to take charge of their own children’s education by letting parents have control of the money earmarked for their kids’ education will improve education more than any administrative fix. Let parents homeschool or choose the school that is best for their kids. We as Americans intuitively have a shared belief in the free market and healthy competition. Let’s offer parents and children choices outside the one size fits all public school system.

Integrity in Affiliation

Submission: Yes

“I have read the Idaho Constitution and the Idaho Republican Party Platform. Except for the provisions specifically noted below, I support the Idaho Republican Party Platform and accept it as the standard by which my performance as a candidate and as an officeholder should be evaluated. I certify that I am not a candidate, officer, delegate or position holder in any party other than the Republican Party.”

Re: Art. I. Sec. 5E. – I believe term limits can be useful.

Re: Art. VI. Sec . 4. – I disagree with the last sentence stating that the remaining roadless areas should be released for multiple uses. One thing that makes Idaho great is unfettered wilderness.

Re: Art. XIV. Sec. 3A. – I am pro life and agree that Roe vs Wade should be overturned. I find calling all abortion murder from the moment of fertilization hyperbole and not borne out by statute.
