Defending Your Dollars

“The bureaucracy is expanding to meet the needs of the expanding bureaucracy.” ~ Oscar Wilde

Sharon Ullman for Ada County Commissioner.

Hi! My name is Sharon Ullman.

A vote for me is a vote to:

  • Cut the current bloated bureaucracy and return to a leaner, more efficient county operation.
  • Leave more of your money in your pockets through zero-based budgeting.
  • Fight to reduce the burden of Ada County property taxes and fees on you and your family.
  • Uphold the U.S. and Idaho Constitutions.
  • Support Private Property Rights and Limited Government.

I previously served two non-consecutive terms as an elected Ada County Commissioner. My first term, I:

  • Prompted a $6 million property tax rebate by revealing, and objecting to, the county’s $20 million slush fund.
  • Saved $7 million for taxpayers on an emergency radio system by questioning the initial, more costly, proposal.
  • Saved county taxpayers $412,000 a year on pre-sentence investigators, a legal responsibility of state government.

My second term, my colleagues and I left a cumulative $81 million in property taxpayers’ pockets by not taking the allowable three percent annual property tax increase, and we did so without the $93.4 million of American Rescue Plan funds provided to Ada County by Congress starting in 2021.

The bureaucracy in Ada County government grew when Democrats had the helm. They added a Chief Operating Officer (making $157,921/year) even though we have three elected commissioners to do that job. The Democrat-controlled Commission also added an $80,000 per year part-time, ineffective, contract lobbyist. Unnecessary expenditures like these are keeping your property taxes too high. It’s time to bring county spending back under control. For more details, please see Cut the Waste.

You can put my experience cutting wasteful spending to work for you by voting for me, Sharon M. Ullman, for Ada County Commissioner on May 21 in the Republican Primary Election. Thank you!

I would love to hear from you! My e-mail address is and my telephone number is (208) 861-5848.
