The Idaho Statesman
Since December 2014, I have worked as politics and state government reporter for the Idaho Statesman in Boise, ID. I cover the governor and other statewide office holders, the Legislature and government agencies, Idaho’s federal elected officials, elections and campaign finance, the state economy, major statewide issues, and national issues with an Idaho angle. I write daily and in-depth stories and analyses and maintain a political blog. As do most print reporters these days, I also shoot and edit video and photographs for the stories I cover. I tend to focus most on policy topics — government taxation and spending, health care policy and delivery, civil rights issues — and look for data-driven stories where I can crunch numbers to analyze trends or use data to, for example, compare Idaho’s policies and governance to those in neighboring states.
