Campaign themes


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

  • Education
Excerpt: "I believe schools are best managed at a local level with the parents of the students doing the managing. Healthy relationships between parents and teachers ultimately provide the best environment for learning wherein both parties support, understand and respect each other as a means to provide the best learning environment possible for the student."
  • Government
Excerpt: "This may not be popular thinking but I would rather try and work together to find the issues 'we can' agree on, rather than fight about those things we will never come to terms on. We must be more productive and move forward past the gridlock of recent years and create a working environment that will benefit the State of Idaho."
  • Natural Resources
Excerpt: "Idahoans enjoy a rich tradition based in Natural Resources. Latah and Benewah Counties are no exception to that, whether it is the rich Palouse wheat and legume fields, the timber logged from the mountains of north Idaho, the beautiful St. Joe River or the wild rice farms, we earn our living from the land. I believe it is our responsibility to safeguard these resources for future generations. To me, that doesn’t mean locking it up or locking us out. It means using the land and water wisely, keeping environmental risks to a minimum..."
  • Taxes
Excerpt: "A necessary evil. They pay for the infrastructure of our lives, from roads to schools. They pay the salaries of those who make our lives safer and better, our firemen, law enforcement, and our teachers. Elected officials must guard against over- stepping or being led astray by programs that 'sound good.' Instead they must ask themselves if this is the role of government."

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.[4] Agidius received a score of 64 points in the 2013 index, ranking 23rd out of 70 members of the Idaho House of Representatives that were evaluated for the study.


Agidius and her husband, Paul, have two children.[5]
