Answer: I’m a small businessman, so my platform is focused on creating a smaller government with a smaller tax burden in order get a larger economy to support more jobs and create more revenue for education:
a) Creating job is something only the private sector can do. The only thing the government should be doing to create jobs is getting out of the way of business owners.
b) Education should be one of our top priorities in Utah. We need to understand that more funding for education is primarily made possible through a thriving economy and local control of funds.
c) States’ rights have been under attack by the Obama administration. I will fight to maintain Utah’s dual sovereignty, including voiding laws like federal land grabs and Obamacare even if the Supreme Court claims they are constitutional.
d) Government should be transparent and accountable to the people at every turn. No government can be of the people, by the people, and for the people unless it is open to the people in every way.
e) Family values are what make our state great. I will fight the liberal assault on our children that would have them believe gay marriage is a good thing and that God has no place in public life.
