Campaign themes


McCrostie submitted the following statement to Ballotpedia:[3]

My top three priorities are improving our policies on education, equality, and the economy.

I will fight for increased state public education funding and a full implementation of the Governor's Education Task Force recommendations.

I will fight for Add the Words to get a hearing and passed. The community outcry is strong for this. To improve our economy, I believe that if we can improve our policies on education and equality, we can attract the right kinds of companies into our state that can provide livable wage jobs for hard-working Idaho families.[4]
