Q: What experiences have prepared you for this office?

Victor Rodriguez: After a 40 year law enforcement career I retired from the Nampa Police Dept. (specialized in homicide investigations). I have been a public servant ever since I was 21 years old until 61 years old. I continued to be active in my community by volunteering for local 501 C 3’s organizations. In 2013 I was appointed by City of Nampa Mayor Tom Dale to serve as a commissioner on the City of Nampa Planning and Zoning Commission until I was elected to the Nampa City Council in 2017. I am a very experienced councilman who’s dedicated to my Nampa community.

Q: What do you see as the most significant challenges residents of this area face that you might be able to address in this position?

Victor Rodriguez: Budget issues that our city has to endure caused by HB 389 which limits local municipalities using available construction fees and places more burden onto homeowners/taxpayers. Growth and strategic planning for our community by using a smart growth plan that benefits our city. Ensure Public Safety continues to grow and protect our city. Locate alternate funding for infrastructure, streets and city services, water, irrigation and sewer. Supporting our residents/ business owners during this terrible COVID pandemic with a message of being thoughtful of each other.

Q: Is there anything else you wish to tell the voters?

Victor Rodriguez: It has been my honor and pleasure serving as your Nampa city councilman over the past four years. Together we have accomplished a great deal in providing a better and more efficient city. When I ran for the council four years ago, I planned on increasing the police department/fire dept. by using impact fees instead of increasing taxes. I also wanted more industrial businesses to land in Nampa to which also established a return in investment by their property taxes. I wanted our community to live, work and enjoy family functions in Nampa and that has been accomplished of which I am very proud of.
