Campaign themes


Fawson's website highlights the following campaign themes:[2]

  • Your Voice on the Hill
Excerpt: "My job in the legislature is to be your voice on Utah's Capitol Hill. Too often our voices are sidelined by special interest groups, judicial imprudence, executive overreach or simple lack of interest. My commitment in being your voice is to listen, to make myself available, to consider all sides and multiple alternatives, and support legislation that would produce the best outcome for residents in District 7 as well as the state. My goal is to educate the voices in our community to ensure that you understand the issues and outcomes."
  • Uphold the Constitution
Excerpt: "I consider the Constitution to be an inspired work that helps to protect our God-given rights. My oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States and the State of Utah will be taken seriously and considered my highest priority. Our Constitution is designed to protect us from government extending beyond its intended purpose. Protecting our citizens is the most important duty of our government."
  • Small Government
Excerpt: "I believe that our city, state and federal government should be limited in size and scope. As a member of the state legislature, I will encourage participation of the private sector in as many areas as possible to keep the involvement of state, federal and local government at a minimum."
  • Fiscal Conservatism & Responsibility
Excerpt: "As a father of four, a business owner, treasurer for several non-profit organizations, and city council member, I understand the importance of living within our means. My practice has been to ensure that purchases/investments are affordable and timely. During my tenure on the City Council, I championed a savings plan that would not only consider long-term, future capital projects, but earmarked a percentage of surplus toward a savings plan that would fund those projects with little to no debt or bonding."
  • Smart Planning
Excerpt: "Utah is an incredible state in which to live. My goal, as a state legislator, is to maintain or increase our appeal. As a member of the North Ogden City Council, I support legislation being made at the level that is as close to our citizens as possible. I am an advocate of preserving our natural resources, encouraging smart residential growth and significant business growth within our commercial areas while protecting property rights of our residents."
