State Senator, District 1

Scott Herndon

Scott Herndon is running for State Senate to carry the conservative grounding of North Idaho all the way to Boise. At the forefront of Scott’s platform for the State Senate is ensuring that government remains limited and serves the interest of the people, not itself. Scott will craft policy that fights DC and Boise encroachment on the lives of Idahoans and ensures COVID-era tyranny never hits Idaho again.

Scott values individual liberty, which he describes as the right to self-government, including your right to govern your own families, churches and businesses. Both the state and the federal constitutions recognize the rights of individuals to self-govern in most aspects of their lives, and these constitutions limit the authority of the state and federal governments. Scott’s platform and principles are easily summarized as:
  1. Value and protect individual liberties. These liberties include those enumerated in the state and federal constitutions and those granted by our Creator. Scott’s mission will be to restrain encroachments on individual liberty from all levels of civil government.
  2. Uphold the constitutional authority of the state of Idaho in relation to the federal government and prevent the encroachments on that authority by an overreaching federal government. Idaho is already constitutionally authorized and must actively oppose federal power grabs. An example is when the Feds try to unconstitutionally seize power from the state by massive federal cash infusions to the state with unconstitutional strings attached.
  3. Enforce the boundaries that exist between the several branches of government. During the COVID era, we have seen these boundaries obliterated. Legislatures make laws, not governors, presidents nor judges. The Idaho legislature must actively fight for its constitutionally granted lawmaking authority and resist power grabs by activist judges, overzealous governors, presidents and un-elected bureaucratic agencies. The legislature is closest to the people and is best positioned to fight for the interests of all Idahoans.

As a self-taught home builder with a previous career in finance and computer programming, Scott Herndon built his own home in Idaho in 2005, acquiring skills which he developed into a full-time career as owner and operator of Scott Herndon Homes. In short order, it became a great success and a primary contributor to Bonner County’s booming housing market. A true family-values conservative, Scott’s sons help him with the family business.

As a Christian, a husband, and a father of eight, Scott believes in preserving and protecting human life. He has followed this in word and deed as an active Abortion Abolitionist and Pro-Gun advocate.

Scott has served his community for five years as a Bonner County jail chaplain and is now chairman of the Bonner County Republican Central Committee.

Married for 24 years to Arlene, Scott has resided near Sandpoint for 18 years. In his spare time, Scott enjoys the beautiful outdoors of the Gem State, boating on Lake Pend Oreille and building a new workshop on his property. His five daughters all still live on the family farm, milking the family’s two milk cows and raising chickens and pigs. They are also talented musicians who have just started to publish their music online.
