Hi, I’m Randy.
I’m running for Post Falls City Council because I want my great-grandchildren to grow up as part of a thriving, resilient, local community here in North Idaho. I fear that won’t happen unless our cities are guided by good Christian stewardship. Our civic duty doesn’t end at the ballot box; the health of our society relies on good men stepping forward as public servants to help direct our city along a path that leads to good outcomes for everyone.
I’m a Post Falls homeowner and small business owner. My wife and I have three children, ages 6, 4, and 2. I grew up in North Carolina and I’ve lived in Post Falls for 5 years. My wife’s family has been in Idaho for generations. I’m a software engineer and entrepreneur, and I currently run two small software businesses here in North Idaho.
What’s best for families is best for Post Falls
The family is the foundational unit of society. When families suffer, everything else suffers too. We must actively prioritize family formation within local policy to ensure a stable society in today’s world of rising costs of food and housing.
What’s best for local small business is best for Post Falls
Locally-owned small businesses are the backbone of a prosperous city—not big box stores. Everyone benefits when control and reinvestment of capital is as local as possible. As such, we should do everything we can to make local entrepreneurship as barrier-free as possible.
What’s best for local resilience is best for Post Falls
Global supply chains have proven fragile and the drawbacks of offshoring American industry in exchange for cheap foreign goods are now clear. As much as possible, we should produce the goods we need locally. Domestic production of food from backyard gardens and homesteads should be encouraged. We should honor the natural right to produce food from one’s own land.
