Jordan Marques was taught to be involved from an early age. His parents, Orlando and Cindy Marques, raised him and his three siblings to love their neighbor and treat people the way they wanted to be treated. Cindy was a strong woman who worked in the healthcare field, until she became a stay at home mother. Jordan's mother instilled strong family values and a sense of curiosity in him. Jordan's father was a legal immigrant to the United States and is a proud American citizen. Jordan's family immigrated from Portugal to escape the struggle between Communism and Socialism. Jordan was taught to always stay informed and involved, to prevent that struggle from coming to the United States. He understands the importance of maintaining our republican form of government. He also understands the value of legal immigration and a secure border.
Jordan is a lifelong Republican. Growing up on a dairy farm, in an agricultural community, conservative values have always been a way of life. Jordan's mother and her family worked harvests and helped to build one of the United State's largest vineyards. Jordan's father has spent his life dedicated to the agricultural industry, first as a dairyman and now a truck driver. Jordan believes in protecting that way of life and preserving beneficial use for future generations. He believes we must continue the rich tradition of agriculture in our district and our state. Jordan has the knowledge and experience to be a strong ally for constituents who are concerned with land and water rights.
Jordan has been married to Melany for eight years and they have five children. Melany is not only Jordan's wife, but his best friend. As his parents did, Jordan and Melany continue to instill strong family values and the importance of being involved, into their children. Jordan is grateful to be able to raise their children in a place where so many hold the same conservative values.
Jordan and Melany are also business partners. They have built a successful firearm manufacturing business. Jordan will be a friend and an ally to business owners throughout our district and the state. His dedication to the Second Amendment runs very deep and he understands that without it, we cannot secure our safety or the safety of our republic.
Jordan has spent nearly five years volunteering as a Legislative Analyst and Constitutional Consultant. He has spent hundreds of hours, during Idaho's legislative sessions, counseling legislators on the constitutionality and consequences of proposed legislation. Jordan has successfully used his knowledge of the Idaho Constitution and the United States Constitution to affect legislation on the local, state and federal levels. Jordan is dedicated to advocating for equality and responsible government, while rejecting all forms of racial and religious supremacy. He understands that we must help legislators and citizens unite to keep Idaho, Idaho.
Jordan is pro dual federalism. The people currently elected, employed and appointed in the Idaho and Federal Governments have been allowed to expand controls and remove boundaries that our founding fathers defined for this country. Jordan believes in strong separation of controls and that the relationship between the citizen and the legislator is the key to maintaining the stability of our system. Citizens over special interest will be his approach.
