"I believe that the road to a stronger economy lies in investment in our schools and our workforce, and in principles of sustainable development."
It is a true honor and privilege to represent District 18 in the Idaho Legislature. We made some real progress in the 2015 session toward restoring much-needed education funding and fixing Idaho's deteriorating transportation infrastructure. I'm especially proud to have spearheaded anti-bullying legislation to help make our schools safe and supportive environments for our children. I also played a central role in negotiating and passing the career ladder bill, which increases teacher pay and aligns incentives with student academic growth. I have several draft bills I'm advancing this session, and am eager to hear your input. Please use the links on this website (including the "Survey" button on the right) to contact me with your opinions and ideas for making Idaho the best place it can be. Also, I am running in 2016 to keep my seat in the House, and I need volunteers to help with my campaign. Please let me know if you're interested in helping, and know that I will always work hard to improve our schools, bring high-paying jobs to our state, and protect Idaho's natural resources and open spaces.
