Let's Grow! There is simply not enough being done to bring more businesses that provide quality jobs to the Pocatello/Chubbuck area. It is difficult for anyone to hear that Pocatello is being passed over by prospective businesses that are looking to relocate, expand or start up in our area.
I will work with state and local economic organizations to bring more higher-paying jobs to the people of our district. If we do this, we will increase our tax base, which should reduce tax rates for everyone.
We also need to support our local businesses by removing hurdles for them such as needless regulations and other high costs of doing business. I will work with local and state entities to remove obstacles that our local businesses face.
