Note: In order to take the Idaho Freedom Foundation survey, I had to mark one of the predetermined choices for each question. For all questions, I marked the choice "I am not sure/undecided". This was not because I am unsure or undecided; in fact I am completely sure and quite decided on all issues involved. The problem was that all choices would misrepresent my actual position, even if they were close. I stated my position in the additional comments section along with the following explanation, "I am completely sure and quite decided on this issue. All pre

IDAHO COALITION OF HOME EDUCATORS
2014 Candidate Statement
1. Do you support or oppose requiring families who home educate to register their children with either the state or their local public school district?
2. Do you support or oppose requiring all children taught at home to take standardized achievement tests each year?
Both of my challengers in the primary race have voting records. I thought it would be useful to see if there was any substantial difference between them. For my research, I went back and analyzed the 2010 legislative session, the latest session where Patti Anne Lodge served as a state senator at the same time Steve Kren served as a state representative.
To those who cherish freedom and liberty, and to those who are tired of politics as usual at the statehouse, I submit to you that we have a wonderful opportunity with this upcoming primary election. While many people look at a three way race as a pass for the incumbent, we have an entirely different situation here. This is not a case where an established politician is challenged my multiple outsiders; instead, both of my opponents are established politicians and I am the only outsider. If my opponents split the establishment vote, I stand a better chance of being elected.
