On March 10th, 2016, I, Alan Littlejohn (Republican), filed to seek the office of State Representative, District 2, Seat B. The office is currently being held by Eric Redman. We worked very hard 2 years ago to get Eric elected. We thought he would be a great person to represent north Idaho instead of Mr. Morse. In some ways, Eric is, but not in voting for Liberty, personal freedom, less Government and lower taxes etc. That is why I am seeking the office of State Representative.
My campaign will focus on Individual Liberties, Property rights, State sovereignty and more.
I will work to bring fiscal responsibility, transparency and government accountability back to the citizens of Idaho. I would like to see the State manage 20 percent of the currently federally managed lands. This would be a starting point. If you do not know, Idaho has about 1 Trillion dollars of natural resources within the State borders and most of that is tied up in the federally managed lands. Access to these resources would allow Idaho to properly fund education and transportation without raising taxes on the people.
I believe that over regulation by the government is hampering economic growth and will work to decrease that regulation.
I believe we should eliminate the grocery tax and reduce or eliminate the state income tax for all Idaho citizens. This money, back in the hands of the citizens will then stimulate the economy as it is spent on goods and services.
I am 53 years old and live in rural Athol Idaho, on a small ranch. I am married to a wonderful wife of 29 years and we have 2 adult children; I am a retired Fire Captain of 29 years. I retired from a small rural fire district in El Dorado County, California. We bought our property in 2003, and moved here permanently in 2007. I have been working to protect private property rights locally since 2012.
With your support, we can get Idaho back as a free and independent state and off the federal dime.
