Born and raised in Davis County, I first got involved in politics by founding the Davis County Young Democrats, which quickly became the most active Young Democrats chapter. I was later elected Chair of the College Democrats of Utah, where we created multiple new college chapters and held monthly events. I’ve worked for Steve Olsen (HD9) in Weber County, Ben McAdams for SLCo Mayor, and know our realities on the ground.
In 2015, I was elected Secretary of the Utah Democratic Party. Over the last two years, as the only elected Executive Committee member who lives outside of SLCo, I have been using my position to help Democrats across the state and have consistently worked hard to bring all opinions to the table. I worked on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in the New Hampshire Primary, while also being elected a National Delegate for Bernie Sanders. I understand that our party needs to come together to move forward, but that actions speak louder than words.
As your next Vice-Chair, I’m advocating the party creates a detailed 10-year plan that includes everything from field organizing and community engagement, to candidate recruitment and fundraising.
