Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Gibbs' website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

  • Our Local Economy
Excerpt: "The local economy in District 32 is driven by the phosphate industry. We are blessed with huge phosphate ore reserves. I will continue to promote environmentally safe mining and production in our district."
  • Our State Budget
Excerpt: "We are fortunate in Idaho that the constitution requires that we pass a balanced budget. Because of this our credit rating remains strong and Idaho remains a great place to do business. I will continue to support Common Sense Solutions to the many challenges that face Idaho."
  • Jobs and the Economy
Excerpt: "We must work to attract new business to locate in Idaho. This can be done by keeping corporate income and property taxes in check. Most importantly we must continue to keep the businesses that are here competitive so that they can continue to provide good well paying jobs."
  • Improving Education
Excerpt: "Education funding will remain a challenge because of the increasing demand for our tax dollars. I will continue to work with teachers, local administrators, and school boards to provide the flexibility needed so that most decisions can be made on a local level."
  • Transportation in Idaho
Excerpt: "Almost all of the goods we produce must be moved to be consumed. Governor Otter is correct to identify transportation as a major issue. The need is clear, however, the question remains as to how to fund the increased spending among all users."

Scorecards

Idaho Freedom Index

The Idaho Freedom Foundation, an Idaho-based, nonprofit educational research institute, released its "Idaho Freedom Index" in 2013. The index intended to show how Idaho legislators voted on the principles the Foundation seeks to promote. It measured each state legislator based on two tiers, which include whether legislators voted for or against bills that would create or eliminate government agencies, programs, and regulations, and bills that would impact the free market in a positive or negative way. Scores ranged from the highest possible score for members of the state Senate (194 points) and for members of the state House (180 points). A higher score indicated that the legislator voted more in favor of the values supported by the Foundation.[13] Gibbs received a score of -42 points in the 2013 index, ranking 57th out of 70 members of the Idaho House of Representatives that were evaluated for the study.
