As a small business owner who has worked hard to realize my dream, I understand the difficulties of successful entrepreneurship. Our Legislature is committed to the policies of the past, and it needs to adapt to rapidly changing economic conditions. Economic progress must ensure local businesses flourish, provide opportunities for business start-ups to thrive, and recruit outside businesses to Idaho. Additionally, District 19's well-being is rooted in the economic vitality of our surrounding rural communities. We must support economic policies that enhance rural communities, and return prosperity to the many citizens who travel to Boise for its services, recreation, and shopping.
I will work to expand Idaho's economy by investing in renewable energy sources that support high-paying jobs; expand on regional expertise to increase business and production efficiency; ensure infrastructure improvements keep up with Idaho's rapid growth; and bring prosperity to the middle class.
