John understands the proper role of government and will defend religious liberty, the right to life, parental rights, free speech, our Second Amendment, and our property rights. These are essential things to keep government limited and Utah free.
Each parent has the right to provide their child with the best education available. As a parent, a conservative, and a Professor at USU, John understands that parents, teachers, and local school boards should be the primary drivers on education results, not big government. His focus will be on classroom results and preparing our students for the jobs of tomorrow.
We shouldn’t need a referendum to stop tax increases on our groceries and gas, especially when we have a budget surplus. John helped to fund and lead the fight to defeat the recent tax increase, and as your senator he will look for innovative ways to reduce spending and bloated government. John’s experience as a creative problem solver and job creator will enable him to work with others to eliminate unnecessary government spending while streamlining and improving essential services to lower costs for our taxpayers.
Our legislature should clear the path for economic recovery after this pandemic. We can start by cutting taxes, unneeded regulations, and rolling back unnecessary government spending and programs. We can also work to make it much easier to work from home, start new businesses, and support creative technologies to help jump-start our state economy again. John’s experience in data, economics, and creating job growth in the mortgage industry following the housing bubble in 2008, will be invaluable as we navigate obstacles to find solutions.
We must continue our economic development responsibly while protecting our family neighborhoods. We need to plan our infrastructure, so we have less time spent in traffic and more time spent with our families. John’s experience in data analytics and economics uniquely prepares him to analyze growth and plan responsibly for our growth while ensuring Utah remains a great place to live, work, and raise a family.

Republican Ideals are my Ideals “We the People” tell the Government what to do, it doesn’t tell us. “We the people” are the driver – the Government is the car. And we decide where it should go, and by what route, and how fast. Almost all the world’s constitutions are documents in which governments tell the people what their privileges…
