About the Candidate: 

Rob Oates is a regular guy, not a career politician, not a lawyer. For the past several years he has been privileged to serve as chair of the Libertarian Party of Idaho. Caldwell is his hometown and he’s a fifth generation Idahoan. Rob has been married for the past 28 years to his wife, Debbie. Rob writes, “I’m father of our three grown children and we have one grandchild. I work as Caldwell’s airport manager, paying the mortgage, and helping the two kids in college at Moscow. In ’03 and ’07 the people of Caldwell elected me to our City Council. Some years earlier, I graduated from Caldwell High and the University of Idaho and served as a US Army officer and later as an attack helicopter pilot and unit commander in the Republic of Korea. For three years I was the Army’s Cobra helicopter weapons test pilot at the Yuma Proving Ground in Arizona. I’ve also worked in the satellite industry and developed database software for business applications on the Internet.

Email: Sheriff@TedDunlap.net
About the Candidate: 

My top priority will be to Serve and Protect the life, liberty and property of the people of Ada County. The Sheriff is the top law enforcement officer elected directly by the people, swears an oath to the Constitution and, if done right, focuses his department on protecting the people from all enemies foreign and domestic. If elected, Sheriff Ted Dunlap will join 200 Constitutional Sheriffs in Idaho and across the USA in stopping illegal enforcement of unconstitutional laws. There is no more important election in Ada County and no higher or more honorable calling of all elected offices.
