My name is, Chantyrose Davison. I am a 41-year-old mother of 2. I am a wife, a step mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend. I am NOT a politician, I am NOT a lawyer. I am simply an average Idahoan, and a REAL person. I am fed up with partial truths and limited information. I am tired of people with nothing to lose, having control over what matters to me. That is why I am running to be the next Governor of Idaho.
I know that this is a horrible time in our government. A lot of people are wanting to look the other way, to try and avoid at least a little bit of the stress and headache we’ve been dealing with lately. For some of us, it encourages us to come out of our comfort zone. To jump into the spotlight, to try and set things right.
I had a hard time trying to choose what political party I wanted affiliate myself with. I believe in 90% of what the Constitution Party stands for, and 90% of what the Republican Party stands for. Though I know that Idaho has been a largely Republican state, I didn’t want to start off by lying for the popular vote.
After a long time of figuring out where I stand, I decided to go with Constitution. I feel we need to go back to the basics. I will also bring with me a strong Republican backing as well. I'd like to consider myself that perfect blend of Constitution and Republican.
I’ve met a lot of you in person over the last 2 years, be it while I was working or fundraising for one thing or another. The one common thing I heard repeatedly asked was, " How do we fix what’s happening?" I didn’t have an answer. I was lost and confused as well.
It’s time to find those answers we have been searching for. The only way to do that, is to really look for them. That is why I am taking this journey. I would love to be your next Governor, to be that person who actually fights for the RIGHTS OF CITIZENS. To be the person who asks questions and persists for answers, and action as many times as it takes. To be the voice of those who are too scared to speak up.
I’ve heard politicians talk about "transparency" so many times, never actually following through with their empty words. I have been an open book to just about everyone. I plan to continue being that person who will tell you what is going on, every step of the way.
When I become Governor, I would love to have a daily briefing so that everyone would know what is actually being worked on, and what is getting done. I will also continue to speak plain English. No more words that only a certain group of people understand. I want everything to be put across so clearly, that ANY middle school student will be able to know exactly what is happening in their state, their home.
I hope you will give me this chance, I can’t wait to hear from each and every one of you.
Thank you for your time. - Chantyrose Davison
