Trusted, Thoughtful, Principled Leadership For Nampa

Major Issues

Economic Development

Endorsed by the Snake River Valley Building Contractors Association and supported by over 35 local businesses. It’s the ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit of the people matched with our resources that create wealth and prosperity. I’m working to reform regulations that hinder economic development. While we’re blessed by our large producers in the city, we must also encourage small business startups, see startups move to viability, and see viable businesses grow. Nampa has a proud heritage of building and serving that will continue in even more exciting ways as the economy evolves. Our technical institutes, institutions of learning, and other programs are training the future workforce. Nampa has a lot to offer and is primed for continued economic growth and increased wages.

Growth

Recent job growth and future job growth for Nampa has and will exceed the national average. We are growing. As such, we must maintain diversification in future land use and make sure that new growth is balanced to meet all of our needs. We need to think about the long-term benefits and liabilities of how we grow as it pertains to maintenance of our infrastructure. We only get to grow once, so we must be smart to assure a sustainable and resilient Nampa for the next generations.

Public Safety

Endorsed by Nampa Firefighters (Local 804). Nampa’s police and fire departments have provided excellent service to the community, often in challenging circumstances. As Nampa grows, we must maintain a proportional scale with police and fire to make sure that response times remain prompt and that sufficient resources are allocated to keep crime low and the public safe. Public safety is a primary role for local government, and the cost of not investing wisely far exceeds the cost of prudent stewardship to assure our citizens are protected from harm. As a Councilmember, I’ve advocated for appropriate revenue allocation from new growth to support public safety.

Quality of Life

With golfing, parks, ponds, the green belt, biking, and more, Nampa is truly a gem when it comes to recreation and quality of life. As Nampa grows, we must be careful to preserve our unique features that make Nampa a beautiful place to live. We are an active community. We must also make sure future parks and recreational activities meet the demands of the city. Our sports leagues will continue to grow and need space to use for practice and games. If Nampa is to remain an active and healthy community, we must value and protect all the assets that foster a healthy, recreational lifestyle. I’ve supported our parks and the expansion of pathways as a Councilmember.
