Cox has served as a State Republican Delegate, an elected member of the State Republican Central Committee representing Salt Lake County, the Salt Lake County Republican House District 32 Chair, and a campaign volunteer and/or consultant for several state and local races starting in 1994. He has been involved in government affairs for both AIA Utah and ChamberWest Regional Chamber of Commerce along with church based community service.
Cox's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt:"The Economy will grow when Government will allow it. In many cases Government is holding business growth back through too many regulations."
- Excerpt:"With the currently available resources, Utah does not have enough money for the demands for Public Education, Transportation, Water, Public Safety, Energy and others. Raising Taxes isn't the answer as that can create bigger government and slower economic growth."
- Excerpt:"Utah has many resources that we are not using, but we still import energy."
- Excerpt:"As a taxpayer and architect, I see the money spent on buildings and will continue to advocate for an improved balance between cost savings and quality to the process. I would hope we can reduce costs while still maintaining the quality and also increase the value and number or size of projects."
- Excerpt:"We should play a role as responsible citizens in our communities, including becoming informed about issues and voting in elections."
In the 2011-2012 legislative session, Cox served on the following committees:
- Judiciary Committee, Utah House of Representatives
- Public Utilities and Technology Committee, Utah House of Representatives
