Both of the candidates running in the November 8, 2022, general election for Idaho House of Representatives District 14B — Shelley Brock (D) and Josh Tanner (R) — completed Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey. These survey responses allow voters to hear directly from candidates about what motivates them to run for office.
Eighty-eight of the country’s 99 state legislative chambers will hold regularly scheduled elections in 2022. The Republican Party controls both chambers of Idaho’s state legislature. Idaho is one of 23 states with a Republican trifecta government.
Here are excerpts from candidates’ responses to the question: What areas of public policy are you personally passionate about?
“I’ve been a leading voice for the protection of Idahoans and their property from the negative impacts of irresponsible oil and gas drilling and other polluting industries that have been allowed by our lawmakers to operate too close to our homes, schools and rivers. I’m for free enterprise. I’m for development.”
“Having grown up in Idaho, I realize the challenges that Idaho’s growth has had on our State and our infrastructure. I see the pain that our cities, counties and districts are experiencing in our struggle to manage this substantial growth. As Chairman of the Eagle Fire District, I have been successful in implementing Impact Fees so that new growth covers its own cost. I believe in managing this exponential growth in a way that pays for itself.”
