Kim Keller for Idaho

I’m running to protect the interests of small businesses and help our Legislature find solutions to some of our oldest problems. I believe in a lean, smart government that looks for the answers by studying both sides of every issue.



Why I am Running to be Your State Representative

I am an Idaho native and small business owner. I grew up in a conservative household with six siblings. Raised by my parents, George and Shareen Keller, I was taught the value of hard-work and living a Christ-centered life. After graduating from Nampa High School, I served a two-year mission for my church in Argentina. When I returned I continued my education and received my undergraduate from BYU and my dental degree from The UCLA School of Dentistry. In May 2020 I will earn my MBA from Northwest Nazarene University. While studying at UCLA I met my incredible wife Sheree. We have been married for 28 years and have three wonderful children. As a family we enjoy the outdoors, living an active lifestyle, and serving in the community.

For 27 years I’ve owned a small business and have been actively engaged in creating jobs and helping the local economy. My business, Nampa Smiles Dentistry, employs forty-five dedicated employees between two locations. I recently partnered with three of my brothers to develop Mettle Sports, a new facility in Nampa with a vision to increase athleticism, teamwork, and opportunity for the youth of Canyon County while creating jobs and volunteer opportunities.

I mimic the beliefs of my Great ‘Uncle T’, Ezra Taft Benson, former U.S. Secretary of Agriculture. He said, “it is a firm principle that the smallest or lowest level that can possibly undertake the task is the one that should do so.” I grew up with a conservative understanding that the government is best when closest to the people. Uncle T believed that “the sole function of government is to protect life, liberty, and property,” and I will work to do just that for the people of this beautiful state. I will be a strong voice for the people of Nampa and District 13 and will work closely with Governor Little and the legislature to address the issues and protect the Idaho way of life. I hope that I can count on your support to be your next Republican State Representative in District 13.

On Obamacare & Abortion

Abortion: No! Human life is sacred.

Obamacare: No! Let individuals choose, not the Federal government.

A coordinated effort by my opponent, or his supporters, to spread false and distorted information through editorials, phone calls, and texts is afoot today in Nampa. As often happens, some people turn to negative and misleading campaigning to sow doubt. For those who know me they understand how absurd it is that I, a religious, small business owner in health care, would advocate for abortion or Obamacare.

The issue to which these folks refer is a letter that I, and hundreds of other health care providers and small businesses, signed back in 2012. This was a federal law that we could not control, but we could stand up and speak for Idaho business and health care. Which we did.

WE DID NOT WANT FEDERAL CONTROL OF HEALTH CARE. This was a 10th Amendment issue that allowed for individual freedom for Idahoans to voluntarily choose their own coverage in the face of looming federal controls. No doubt about it, this was a local solution to bad federal policy. It was either Idaho runs it, or the Federal government takes over. This was not support for Obamacare or abortion.

I hope that the candidate will honorably disavow the negative and misleading attacks and let politics be about his positions.

The Proper Role of Government⁣

I’m running for the state legislature because I support the proper role of government. My great-uncle, Ezra Taft Benson, was an Idahoan that became the secretary of agriculture during the term of Pres. Eisenhower. Uncle T, as we called him, defended small government by telling us that “it is a firm principle that the smallest or lowest level that can possibly undertake the task is the one that should do so” and that “the sole function of government is to protect life, liberty, and property.” ⁣

The principles of small government run deep in my family, and I echo these words of my great-uncle “I am opposed to any attempt on the part of the Federal Government to deny the people their right to bear arms, to worship and pray when and where they choose, or to own and control private property.” ⁣

I’m asking for your vote to represent Nampa and our firm commitment to smaller government.
