Why All the Accolades?
While things aren’t perfect in Utah and we can always do better, we should realize just how good we have it. We balance our state budget and tuck something away for a rainy day, our state government’s ratio of employees to state population is among the lowest in America. Our legislative session is one of the shortest in the country and that’s good for everyone concerned. We get things done!
As a fifth-generation Utahn, I’m proud and humbled to serve you in our state legislature and I’m proud of our great state and our great people. We aren’t without serious challenges but we work collaboratively to find sensible solutions without overtaxing each one of us.
Utah is great because its people are great and our best days are ahead.
