A BETTER, SAFER COMMUNITY FOR 2022:
"Taking Back Our Government" Video
New This Month
Reflections on the Campaign.
Behind the Utah State Capitol. July 13, 2020. Dedicated to working hard behind the scenes with you to get the "real" job of passing good laws on your behalf. It's not about making headlines or making myself look good on the front of the Capitol steps.
New. October 13, 2020. Getting Real Results You Can Actually See. Clearfield City repainted the left-hand turn lane to improve line of sight and safety for on-coming traffic on 1000 West and 200 North, Clearfield. One of the recommendations from my 1000 West Traffic Safety Study completed last year.
It was a dark and stormy night. Actually, a new day in politics is dawning, full of uncertainty for Republicans and a bright and perhaps discordant one for Democrats under its big diverse tent. We can only imagine what life will be like in 2022.
As for the 2020 election, I was one of the few, if only, Davis Democratic candidates to actually eke out an improvement form 2018, increasing by one percent my performance while most other candidates lost votes. One theory of the disappointing results for Democrats was the lack of a moderate third-party Presidential candidate this year (2020). "How to explain President Donald Trump’s big improvements in key areas of Utah," The Salt Lake Tribune (December 8, 2020). Yet while on average President Trump increased his voting turn out by 4.5% in the Clearfield/Ogden area, I still was able to narrow my loss to the incumbent from two years ago. With another Utah House election only two years away, the chances of making House District competitive is very, very good. Moderate Republicans and Independents, and Democrats will have a great chance of having our voices heard at the State Legislature in 2023 as the most committed and informed voters will have the luxury of two years of a national Democratic administration to assess what life can be with a different political party leading the way.
As I have mentioned before, I commit to bring both integrity and compassion back to state government for all of us using my decade-long professional skills as a state licensed clinical social worker and decades of actual community service. We together can "Take Back Our Government." You deserve the best.
Be safe and take very good care.
