Chuck Lowman, an Army veteran, is also running for seat 1B.

“I am here because I have proven I am a serving leader,” he said. “I’m the kind of person who wants to take time and understand the problems and issues we have, not just from my team's perspective. But we need to understand the whole perspective, so we can understand the whole problem.”

“I’m not going to be that kind of politician that goes along with how a caucus or party tells me how to vote,” Lowman said. “I’m here to represent you, listen to the whole argument and get the whole argument. Then ultimately, I will stand before my creator for eternity for my choices. The Idaho Freedom Caucus, the Idaho Republican Party, the mainstream caucus, they’re not going to stand for eternity on how they voted.”

Lowman is concerned about what is in local libraries and said he has seen obscene materials that have come out of them. However, he is also concerned about how the law is currently written, noting that eventually insurance companies could dictate library materials. Current wording could be used against those fighting for the management of explicit materials, with books like the Bible having the potential to be removed.

“As a conservative Christian, I know that the Bible is offensive to some folks,” he said. “What day is the Bible going to be banned from libraries, not because of a law that’s passed, but because an insurance company says it’s not wise to have it there?”
