Welcome to the Virtual Office of the 1st District of Idaho

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you as your representative in the 111th Congress. I and my staff strive to be an effective voice for Idaho, which means always working hard to meet your needs, answering your questions and representing your interests.


From the canyonlands of the Owyhees to the lakes of Boundary County, I have traveled throughout this District. Like you, I love its people, its natural resources, its recreation, its business climate and the sense of community. It is an honor to work with you to protect the Idaho values we all hold dear.


Please do contact me if you have a problem requiring assistance, an idea about an issue or if you just want to keep me informed.
