No New Taxes - Prudent Budgets
The County budget is BLOATED and has grown a whopping 65% in just six years and now tops $1.5 billion.
I did NOT support this year's 7.8% property tax increase proposed by Mayor Jenny Wilson.
It took 167 years, from 1847 to 2014, for Salt Lake County to reach its first $1 billion budget. And only six years to reach a $1.5 billion budget. This explosive spending growth is unsustainable!
It is vital that we improve the strength of our economy and get people back to work. Helping our small businesses get back on their feet is a top priority. I will promote a vibrant economy while balancing growth to maintain our quality of life.
Public Safety - Support First Responders
Salt Lake County residents must be safe in our homes and neighborhoods. Our children must be safe while at school. Public safety is my number one priority and supporting our first responders is essential to accomplish this.
Upholding law & order is vital for a safe community. I do not believe in defunding our police. Respect for our law enforcement is essential for safe neighborhoods. We should expect all residents to follow the law and not tolerate vandalism, violence or mob rule.
Open Space - Quaility of Life
The current pandemic has demonstrated just how valuable our open spaces, parks and canyons are to our community. I am an advocate for these regional treasures. I am passionate about keeping Quail Hollow Park natural and maintaining our Corner Canyon trails. I will fight to keep Dimple Dell wild, work to ensure our district gets proper funds for trail maintenance, and look for ways to improve transportation and water quality in the canyons.
