For the past two years I've voted to ensure that public education received increased funding. In 2012 I was instrumental in obtaining $10,000,000 in State funding for constructing a new building for the Tooele Applied Technology College. In 2012 my efforts resulted in Tooele City receiving $2,000,000 for infrastructure improvements for the City's education corridor. I've worked closely with the Tooele County School District and the Tooele County Education Association to assure that their interests have been heard on Capitol Hill. I believe that every child should have access to quality education. I believe thatparents have the primary right and responsibility to educate their children, and that it is their right to choose public, private, or home education.
