The conservative said he doesn't believe his opponent is representing the values of the district well and, if elected, will steer away from a governmental mentality. Santiago's been actively involved with county politics for the past several years while attending house meetings. He says both his leadership skills, tied along with his many relationships with House Representatives make him the right person for the position and that it's time Idahoans ask themselves what direction they want local government to go.
"Do they want Idaho to go down the same path that America's going down under our current leadership, or do they want a more conservative leadership," said Santiago.
Santiago said he's ready to make a difference and supports personal liberty, freedoms and property rights.
