Reason for Seeking Public Office:
Utah has and will continue to see significant changes. By the year 2050 our population will nearly double in size to 5.4 million. This change is imminent and the decisions we make today will impact how our environment will look in the future. Regional coordination and collaboration will become more and more important as we grow. We need to prepare for growth and it will be important for us to consider policies that will support and sustain the environment we want 30 years from now.
For this reason, I will focus on supporting policies that positively advance our state in areas of economic development, education, air quality, and transportation infrastructure.
