1. Do you support giving Idaho counties and communities a local taxing option, and if so, what options would you support granting to the county or community and under what circumstances?
The local communities should have the right to local option taxes. School districts, local fire departments, etc.

2. Do you support Idaho House Joint Resolution 2 (a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage in Idaho) and suggest that Idaho voters approve it?
No. there is already a stature covering it. This is a duplication

3. Do you believe that a vocal minority of residents too frequently get their way over the wishes of a less political majority?
Yes The squeaking wheel gets the grease.

4. Do you believe that state laws requiring seat belt use in automobiles and helmets while riding motorcycles should be strengthened?
I don't know whow the state law reads. I am in favor of them being required.

5. Do you suggest that Idaho voters approve Proposition 2 (the proposal that requires taxpayers to pay compensation to landowners if land use rules affect their property)?
No, the first part on eminent domain is fine, but is already law( H555). The second part on Regulatory taking is a can of worm and would lead to numerous expensive lawsuits.
