Candidate for
Utah House of Representatives District 27
Campaign website
Sarah Nitta was a 2012 Republican candidate for District 27 of the Utah House of Representatives.


Campaign themes


Nitta's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Shrinking Our Government
Excerpt: "When the government shrinks, our economy grows. Every unnecessary government program requires siphoning off money from the private sector that would otherwise be used to promote economic growth."
  • Creating More Jobs
Excerpt: "Creating more, better-paying jobs for our communities now and for our children in the future isn’t rocket science. All it requires is low taxes, less regulation and letting citizens do what only they can do best - invest and create."
  • Protecting Our Rights
Excerpt: "We need to push back against the federal intrusions on our rights and our lands, but when we do, we need to return power to the people. We must be careful to not replace federal overreach with state overreach."
  • Funding Education
Excerpt: "In order to reduce class sizes, we need more tax dollars in the classrooms. That means we have to grow the economy to raise revenue and promote efficiency in our education system."
