Campaign themes

Utah Values

  • Excerpt: "There are a number of traditional values I hold but don’t list as my primary issues. Among these are my belief in marriage between a man and a woman, the right to life, the right to bear arms, the right to own property, the right to free speech and religion, limited government, and the balance of power between the federal government branches as well as between the state and federal levels."

Community

  • Excerpt: "I believe our streets should be safe and our quality of life defended. I make sure that we are not ignored or overlooked by state government."

Transportation

  • Excerpt: "I will make certain that your voice is heard on Utah’s Capitol Hill to assure fair allocation of funds for Westside projects."

Education

  • Excerpt: "I recognize the need for better educational outcomes. We must eliminate wasteful spending and reinvest those dollars in the classroom and in programs that work"

Jobs

  • Excerpt: "In addition, our state government needs to live within its means. We do not need to go further into debt to try and build a utopian society right now. We can expand our infrastructure when we have the money to pay for it."

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Utah

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Utah scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
