People Before Politics

What Does People Before Politics Look Like?

Elected officials carry the responsibility of working hard to protect the rights of their constituents. Each Utahn has unique political and social priorities, and as their Representative, I will work to amplify their voices. People before politics means that I believe it is our duty to set aside our differences to create a Utah that respects and empowers everyone who chooses to live here. Compassion needs to have a bigger role in politics and in our lives. Click on the images on this page to read an article that shows each issue is relevant to Utah.
