Both of the candidates running in the November 8, 2022, general election for Idaho State Senate District 10 — Bob Solomon (D) and Tammy Nichols (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.
Here are excerpts from candidates’ responses to the question: What are the main points you want voters to remember about your goals for your time in office?
- “I hope to work with other legislators to solve long standing issues. Rising property taxes, crowded classrooms and desperately needed schools, poorly managed growth, rising housing and other living costs need attention.”
- “I view representing our district as a sacred trust under our system of government. This means listening and talking with people.”
- “I will work for an Idaho in which young people (really everyone) can live, work and recreate, enjoying and preserving the Idaho way of life–including home ownership.”
- “The Senate has been a place where good legislation has gone to die, it is time to change that”
- “I take the arrows to protect and stand for our rights and will continue that over in the Senate.”
- “The voice of the people needs to be heard and represented, not ignored. I have been and will continue to be that voice.”
