FIGHTING FOR THE WEST SIDE
FIGHTING FOR YOU
WEST SIDE EQUALIZATION
As Mayor, I witnessed the East Side get more than its fair share of county investment.
My first job, if elected, is to shine a light on this problem and to help the West Side get more funding for parks, roads, and other funding.
After all, we pay our share. We should have representatives who are alert and who are willing to fight for funding for programs and investments that we have been denied for far too long.
This issue is dear to my heart and is what motivated to throw my hat in for this seat.
In recent years, Salt Lake County has raised your property taxes, and grown its budget immensely.
As Mayor of South Jordan, I was able to lower taxes twice. We did it by slowing the hiring of Full time employees and saying no to frivolous pet-projects and waste.
Salt Lake County does a lot right, but needs to constrain its mission to avoid things that cities do better and more efficiently. There are many services that the county provides which can be redirected or eliminated, leaving more money in your pocket. Economic liberty is essential.
STANDING WITH POLICE
America is being reminded that systemic racism still exists in our midst. We can and must do better on this effort. I pledge to stamp out racism in our county government wherever it is discovered.
That said, we cannot yield our cities and neighborhoods to lawlessness and we cannot allow our officers to shoulder all the blame of the actions of the few. We cannot allow them to be abused verbally or physically.
I will stand with the brave men and women who protect us everyday.
