Tommy Ahlquist on Government Reform
Term limits & campaign disclosure for statewide officials
Responsive, citizen-based leadership is critical to a strong Idaho. When professional politicians spend too much time in office, they lose touch with the realities of what Idaho families and businesses face, and as a result, put the needs of the special
interests in front of the needs of the taxpayer. Limiting executive statewide elected officials to 8 years (two 4-year terms) will help ensure that Idaho has the future we all deserve.
Idaho is one of only 2 states that has no disclosure requirements
for elected officials. This reform would require elected officials to disclose their sources of personal income. This is the most basic transparency measure that helps avoid conflicts of interest among elected officials. This reform would require
elected officials in Idaho to disclose the employer and job title for themselves and their spouse, any source of income of more than $5,000. Disclosing this information will fill a gaping hole that has persisted in Idaho's ethics laws for far too long.

End excessive and burdensome regulation like EPA's
Tommy will fight to rein in the EPA, stop ObamaCare and eliminate burdensome regulations. Obama failed to understand that the proper role of government is to be limited and local. They stifled growth, and they discouraged innovation.
They regulated businesses out of business. Tommy will fight to limit government, get rid of excessive and overreaching regulations and reform our tax code to spur job creation.
