Campaign themes


Paterson's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Economy
Excerpt: "It is the engine that creates jobs that support the working men and women of Idaho, puts the bread on the table, supports the schools, and creates the standard of living that enriches our lives. I will stand firm against the undue burden of over regulation and excess taxes."
  • Education
Excerpt: "Parents should have the right to choose what is best for their children regardless if they home school, go to private school, or attend one of our fine public schools."
  • Neighborhoods
Excerpt: "I served as the President of the West Bench Neighborhood Association which taught me a very strong lesson in how important neighborhoods are as building blocks for our communities. I believe that safe communities promote strong, healthy families and are a major factor in determining our quality of life in Idaho."
