Top 3 Issues:

1. Repealing and Reducing Taxes Idaho’s Constitution states we must have a balanced budget, yet Idahoans continue to be over taxed. At a time where the United States is facing increasing inflation and a crippling economy, it is imperative we lessen the burden by ensuring Idahoans keep their money in their pockets. Giving tax breaks to large corporations while crippling small businesses and tax payers is never the answer.
2. Medical Freedom and Privacy. The proper roll of government is to ensure the rights of citizens are protected. The roll of government is NOT to keep us safe. Idaho’s Constitution states we are free people, that also means we are in charge of making our own medical decisions, which are our own and no one else’s. No one has the right to mandate masks or vaccines on another person, nor can the government impose mandates or track its citizens medical information.
3. CRT and School of Choice Critical Race Theory has no business in our schools or libraries. I believe the money should follow the students, not the school.
