Biographical Information

Utah continues to be one of only 11 states with no limit on the amount of money an individual can contribute to a political campaign, and one of only 5 states with no limits on what a corporation can contribute. Do you favor any limits on donations to political campaigns? Why or why not?

What is the legislature’s role in addressing the homeless problem and assuring affordable housing for the working poor?

Not all school districts are able to provide the same resources for their students. How should we support school districts with lesser ability (primarily because of lower property values) to raise revenue?

The Utah State Constitution reads, in part, "Both male and female citizens of this State shall enjoy equally all civil, political and religious rights and privileges." The Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution of the United States reads, “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.” Should Utah ratify the ERA which expresses the same view as the Utah Constitution? Explain your position.

I am a first-time candidate after a 34-year career in education. I am eager to understand the arguments for and against limiting campaign contributions. Most importantly, I am eager to better understand the desires of the constituents of District 40. I will work hard to represent the political desires of my constituents.
The legislature has the privilege and responsibility, working with other political bodies, to write laws and to collect and disperse public monies. It is a high and sacred trust. I have published on my personal interest in addressing the homeless problem and supporting affordable housing. We can do better!
I support legislation and tax code that ensures steady and adequate funding for public schools. I have written an opinion piece for Utah Policy that notes the all-too-common travesty of teachers needing to provide classroom resources for students from personal funds. I appreciate the position of candidate Lt. Governor Cox to ensure that there is funding equality across school districts. If elected, I would be a strong advocate in the legislature for equal funding of schools.
I wholeheartedly support the Utah State Constitution. As a legislator I will always act to ensure that ALL citizens of this state enjoy equally all civil, political and religious rights and privileges.
