I’m running for Utah House District 41 because I think it’s time the South Valley gets the representation they deserve.

Riverton, Bluffdale and Herriman are experiencing high rates of growth, but the infrastructure isn't keeping up. The current folks elected spend all their time trying to fight growth, instead of planning ahead for growing families and the economic growth they encourage in every other area of legislation. If we want Utah business to grow, we must provide places for those business owners and workers to live, and sticking our heads in the sand and hoping they'll go away isn't the path forward.

I want to lead our valley into a new time of infrastructure growth that supports the new residents. Funding for schools will prepare our kids to become great contributors to our society; and roads, public transportation and utilities will mean we can support new homes and residents when they come. I want to help focus funding on our part of the valley, instead of letting it get diverted everywhere else.

I'm also very passionate about issues affecting our most marginalized communities. I've been particularly struck by those experiencing homelessness, substance abuse, and lack of medical care throughout this last winter; and into the COVID-19 pandemic. It is important to find solutions that break down barriers for these populations, and improve their access to critical needs the rest of us take for granted.

I'm very committed to representing my district, and representing Democratic values in the south valley.

I want to lead our valley into a new time of infrastructure growth that supports the new residents.
