Stephen Allmer

State Senator Legislative District 23

Biography & Background

Here is a little bit about me. My wife and I were born and raised in Colorado. My Dad and Mom were Plumbing Contractors and owned a farm while purchasing my grandfather’s farm. I am a born-again believer since I was seven. I was in 4-H for ten years and other groups. I am an advocate for children to be part of something they are passionate about. We lost our dad when I was only 14 in a ditch cave-in yet learned very much from him. My mom who turned 90 this past January was able to raise four children and kept us all on the straight and narrow. I learned from my folks how America is the best country in the world. They build a legacy to pass on to their children, not debt.

I married my high school sweetheart, and we will be married 47 years in May. We have two wonderful children and four awesome grandchildren. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting. I have been part of a couple successful businesses. My most recent business was General Engineering Contracting firm building water/wastewater plants, pump stations, turbine and Haz mat projects up to $30 million. I have learned how to work in difficult situations, make difficult decisions with my colleagues and being part of something bigger than just me. I learned how to deal with getting projects accomplished with local, state and federal agencies. I love building. I sat on our church board as the financial elder/pastor for over 20 years. I retired in 2017 in the gem state of Idaho. Our daughter moved here to raise her family and we followed. We love our little ranch, raise a few feeder calves, our farm/ranch that has been in the family for over 100 years and country living.

Folks want to know why I am running for the district 23 State Senate Seat. I love freedom, liberty and the pursuit of happiness! I witnessed firsthand 2020 and 2021 as all of you have. I watched our freedoms leak like a leaky faucet, I witnessed folks losing their jobs, their careers, families placed in hardships and hope lost. Hope deferred makes the heart sick. It made my blood boil. When you build a project, whether or not it is plant or anything; time is of the essence. The team in Boise were late or non-existent. It virtually was an infectious disease that affected every Idahoan. I learned from my dad, either lead, follow or get out of the way.

I am a Conservative Christian Republican and would like to go to work for you, represent you and be a voice for Idahoans!

When a business gets bogged down by not producing, you change those in leadership. I want to restore faith, freedom, and protect Idaho’s sovereignty. We need to protect the US, ID Constitutions and amendments, Declaration of Independence, stop drug & human trafficking, back the blue.

Top 3 Issues:

1. My top issue would be Election Integrity. Without this, the rest really doesn’t matter. One registered Idahoan – one vote. Ensure voter lists are updated and accurate. Tamper-proof paper ballots, traceable with watermark… Voter ID requirements and training on what is acceptable in this category. No outside interference.
2. Idaho Tax – With the current inflation and spike in property taxes, property tax reform is necessary. Sales Tax on Groceries – Eliminate. Licenses and fee reform. Gas/Diesel/Fuel taxes pulled during inflationary times like the present.
3. Medical/Health Freedom – my body, my choice. No mandates. No federal overreach, Idaho is a Sovreign State and intend to keep it. Major Donors (Medical, Hospital, Pharmaceutical) shall cause the elected official to recuse from being part of the committee or voting on matters. Strict adherence to the US, Idaho Constitutions and Amendments, Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights.
