Issues

Campaign themes

Smith's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Education

  • Excerpt:"My goal: to bring Utah education funding from last place to at least the mid-point of the states. I support obvious funding sources such as increasing the severance tax, restoring the Huntsman tax cuts, and modernizing various practices and tax exemptions that have run their course."

Clean Air

  • Excerpt:"Breathing particulates and junk is neither fun nor healthy."

Public Lands

  • Excerpt:"However, selling off public land is not only illegal but would result in a great sell off of land for development with a small percentage going to the schools. An absurd idea. Our public lands are not an amenity. They are us."

Jobs

  • Excerpt:"I will work toward the goal of promoting meaningful job creation whenever possible."

ALEC

  • Excerpt:"I can think for myself about needed legislation; I don’t need ALEC."
