I care deeply about Utah’s public education and air quality. I’ve been disappointed by recent actions taken by the legislature to undermine popular voter passed ballot initiatives, especially the independent redistricting commission. I believe voters should choose their representatives, not the other way around. I’m also concerned by recent efforts to undermine and defund public education; my mother is a kindergarten teacher in Canyons school district and I’ve seen firsthand the long hours and hard work she puts in to help her students succeed. We need to improve funding and support for our public school teachers.
