A Few Kind Words From Citizens in District 16

Working together makes all the difference.

Someone once said, “You’re only as strong as your weakest link.” While that applies to many aspects of life, when it comes to our inspired form of representative government it has never been truer. Because government, at all levels, is too big and bureaucratic, many feel lost and that they don’t have a voice. As a result, they sit on the sidelines, don’t engage, and don’t vote. That’s not the American or the Utah way. Your voice does matter, it does count, and it can be heard. And especially now, it’s critical to adhere to inspired Constitutional Principles and the values and moral bedrock that has built our great state and county. Let’s work together making our community and state even stronger than ever. While respecting each other’s background and perspective, together, we can make a difference.
