Steve Johnson: voters’ choice

October 9, 2022

During the primary campaign, candidate Scott Herndon demonstrated viciousness and untruthfulness in his attacks on the incumbent senator. A lengthy text from him that blocked my reply made it clear he didn’t want to hear from me; his mind was set. Such absolutism and extremism are evident in his agenda: he would reject funding for Medicaid, public education, Meals on Wheels, highway and road improvements, and veterans’ services, among others. He believes a woman has no right to choose under any scenario. He wants to sell our public lands into private hands.

We voters have a choice.

Steve Johnson supports access to public lands and preserving the quality of our rural lifestyle. His 42 years in public education will serve us well as the new state law ushers in funding for public education. His top priority is to double the homeowners’ property tax exemption to $250,000 to keep pace with increasing home prices.

I cherish my freedoms, including recreating on public lands, casting my ballot, making my own medical decisions, and having choices such as where to worship and what to read. To that end, I support Steve Johnson, the write-in candidate for Idaho State Senator, District 1.
