Why Tommy Ahlquist

has my vote

We have raised our family in Idaho because of Tommy Ahlquist. He recruited my husband from Denver to work with his ER group and he sold us on Idaho. His love for this state is infectious. Sixteen years later, we share that love.

I am voting for Tommy because I want our kids to have the opportunity to come back here and raise their families. We will need a plan in order for that to happen.

We cannot continue to fail to adopt an actual state budget. Tommy will start with a budget. We cannot continue to get a D+ in education. Tommy’s plan to introduce accountability in education, to connect Idaho kids and Idaho jobs by engaging industry with our schools, and increasing school choice will help improve those rankings. Tommy’s plan to revamp healthcare, including lowering premiums by cutting waste helps families and businesses. And Tommy’s plan to cut overreaching regulations and make Idaho a business friendly state will make Idaho a place to which our kids can, and will want to, return.

Idaho is the fastest growing state in the union. So, Tommy’s plan to address infrastructure is an absolute must. We need plans, projections and actual leadership moving forward.

As a boy who earned every merit badge the Boy Scout’s offered, as an ER doctor, and a businessman, it is safe to say that Tommy is ambitious, he always has a plan and he gets things done. I can’t wait to see what this great state will become with him at the helm.
