I’m a freedom loving American who has watched over the past few years as parental rights, the right to worship God, constitutional freedoms, and medical liberties have all been threatened. Some businesses were deemed essential and others shuttered in a violation of their constitutional rights during the pandemic. I believe people are wise enough to make their own decisions to protect themselves. We have the right to say no to medical procedures. We have the right to say no to critical race theory. We have the right to run our businesses as we deem fit.

I am a 5th Generation Idahoan. I care about our people and our community. My wife and I have been married 27 years and have 8 children. We are in the grocery business with Stokes Market and agri-business with Pickett Equipment and Double L. Through my ties to agri-industry, I understand water is the life blood of Idaho’s economy. The Magic Valley is magic because of water. I’ll work to preserve our water rights. I hope to preserve the Idaho we love and cherish so it can be passed to our children and grandchildren.
