Campaign themes

Pankey's campaign website listed the following themes for the 2014 race:


  • Education: Make Idaho’s schools number one in the nation.
  • Jobs: Both High Tech and Low Tech.
  • Veterans: Ethically meet the needs of Idaho’s returning Veterans.
  • Simple Language Legislation that says what it means, and means what it says. Simple Language Legislation is a Check and Balance on Idaho State Government.

I intend to keep simple issues simple, and bring together competent people to resolve Idaho’s complex issues. Idaho has hope through knowledge and progressive solutions. [3]
