Integrity in Affiliation
“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.”
I pledge NO allegiance to any political party platform. I stand and support the Idaho Constitution as it is written and as a living document. I stand with the United States Constitution as it is written as well as a living document.
I am against autocracy. I stand for democracy; fair and equitable access for all eligible voters to participate in primary and general elections.
Sec. 3: We believe in improving the quality of education for every child by maximizing
parental choice through expanded support for public charter schools, public virtual charter schools, school choice 5 programs, and accountable public school systems. We believe all public school students are entitled to our support, and to fair and equitable funding
Sec. 4 We support efforts to improve our public school system. We also recognize that
more government spending does not necessarily generate improved schools.
Sec. 5 We strongly support professional technical and continuing education programs that
provide career readiness and college preparation.
Sec. 6 We recognize the importance of Idaho’s higher education system in continuing the
education of our citizens. The education and research that occurs at our institutions of
higher learning contributes substantially to a vigorous economy, heightened competition
and a vibrant participatory government.
Sec. 7 We are proud of our many dedicated, professional teachers and educators who
have committed their lives to educating Idaho’s children. We value the contribution our
teachers make to our society. We support the efforts to reward great teachers for their
hard work. We support incentives for teachers, so that our best educators are willing to
remain in the classroom and work with our children.
Sec. 8 We believe that in order for public education to be successful, schools and families
should work together with mutual respect and cooperation.
I do not support “”incentive base pay.”” I support Dr. Deming’s teachings and his philosophy. https://deming.org/
Idaho is 51st in spending per pupil, we must do better to support and prepare Idaho students! Our kids deserve more from all of us!
