Born into a Communist Country, Claudia saw firsthand how the government controlled every aspect of her family’s life. Her grandmother would leave the house at three in the morning to walk to the grocery store, then stand in line for hours to purchase basic things such as bread or sugar. Around the time she turned seven years old, her father made the decision to escape the country and take her along with him. The two ended up in Austria, being sponsored by a church to enter legally into the United States.
She met her husband thirty-two years ago, having three beautiful children together. For twenty-eight years she was a military wife, and this experience helped her gain a deep respect for those that have died for the freedoms we all have.
Today, Claudia sees the direction the government has been allowed to move towards and she wants to ensure that those ideologies do not slither into the great state of Idaho.
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm, as the case may be) that I will support the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution of the State of Idaho, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of (insert office) according to the best of my ability.”
