Idaho needs good leadership. I am running for Idaho State Senate because I want to fight to have our values represented.

I value the vast opportunities our state provides. Idaho has been a place for my family and me to learn. I became a doctor thanks to the strong education opportunities here. Public schools served my four daughters. Schools deserve our support.

I value the opportunity to be a physician and businessman in this state. If we have vital workplaces and jobs, then we can build healthy communities.

I value the land and the opportunities to hike and hunt and fish.

I value the rugged individualism of Idaho and how it reflects personal responsibility. And I value my neighbors. I know how I live my life can affect them. We all need to respect the fact that we’re in this together. If we treat each other fairly, we need less government.

Please support me as we work toward an Idaho that reflects our shared values.
