As a representative of District 12, I will seek out what matters most to people of of our District and work with leaders of the several communities to address those concerns at the local and state levels.  I will work with all key stakeholders to find responsible, efficient, and good solutions for all Utahns.  I will work to find common ground solutions with all involved, regardless of political affiliation.  Because I am not a member of either major party, I am uniquely positioned to work with all involved to solve the most pressing issues in our state without the pressure to adhere to a party position.


I care very deeply about creating an education system where parents can be assured that their students are receiving a quality education, students feel safe and able to achieve high expectations, and where teachers feel valued and appreciated,  As a teacher, I have a unique perspective that will enable me to meet with all 3 entities to ensure we pursue meaningful legislation to ensure that we create the best education system in the nation.  We can do this by pursuing legislation that will recruit and retain quality educators, help students learn and master essential content that will help them become successful in their chosen profession, and will arm parents with important resources that will help them support their children in their pursuit of academic excellence.

In the classes I teach at school, I have my students discuss the many diverse and controversial topics that are associated with our government.  They deftly discuss a wide range of issues and they do so passionately and with civility.  They have mastered what many in our political climate have not and that is the ability to disagree on issues and policy without attacking one another.  As your representative, I will have meaningful conversations with everyone, including those that may oppose my position on the issues, in order to have successful resolutions of the issues that impact their lives. I will bring honor, dignity, and civility to our quest to find solutions that will benefit us all.
