I am a California-born, Idaho-raised gal. My parents moved us to Idaho in 1970 when I was only four years old.
After graduating from Jerome High School in 1984, I married my high school sweetheart Tom Zuiderveld. We will be celebrating 37 years of marriage in January 2022. We have 3 sons, 2 daughter-in-loves, and 4 instant grandchildren.
We have been self-employed for 27 years.
Why am I running?
I believe we must do all we can to protect our God-given individual rights and state sovereignty. Over the past few years, we have witnessed these two core necessities stripped away by our current representation. I can no longer stand by and watch them vote in more regulations, more spending, and allow the federal government to overstep their boundaries.
Many say, “we need to vote them out.” We can not vote them out unless there is someone to vote in. Now it is up to you: if you truly want to vote my opponent out, vote me in.
What are my qualifications?
According to the U.S. Constitution, Article I, section 2, clause 2, “No Person shall be a Representative who shall not have attained to the age of twenty five Years, and been seven Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State in which he shall be chosen.”
While I realize these basic qualifications are for federal representatives, I still meet them all.
Part of our problem is we are being represented by people with a lot of letters behind their name who are voting away our freedoms and liberties. Those who rely on their college degrees are part of our current problem. It is time to start voting in people like the New Jersey truck driver. I am not a truck driver, but I have the experience, diligence and obedience that was required to run our own business while raising and home schooling our children. My success will be our success.
