our homes and neighborhoods: We rely on our secure homes, well-managed community systems, and well-maintained infrastructures as we build our lives and our kids' futures.
We see the value of law enforcement and fair judicial system. Many of us know the impacts of health, addiction, and air quality. We rely on well-informed, responsive leaders to listen and work to create both the dialogue and solutions for issues that affect us all. I am committed to growing our community connections and to building realistic resolutions with you. OUR Humanity: WE KNOW THAT civility and SHARING information and ideas can make words and actions MORE EFFECTIVE.
We all have similar dreams as well as struggles. Our best work is done together, and I am a strong, sensible leader who upholds positive, respectful, productive dialogue . It's not a matter of being "politically correct" to behave with civility and dignity. Audacity and message are lost if they are expressed in an obnoxious, offensive manner.
Our classrooms: The accomplishments of our students & teachers together are the purpose of an education system & must stay at the forefront of discussions.
Access and opportunity for K-12 and post-high school students;
Funding as an investment for students access, achievement, and futures;
College as a financial concern - It’s the best investment for our children, community, and economy, but higher education comes with a price for families.
Teaching and learning must remain the focus for decision-making.
Teachers, other education professionals, and their salaries, safe and supportive working conditions, dignity and respect.
OUR JOBS: AS EMPLOYEES, WE WORK TO SUPPORT OURSELVES AND OUR HOUSEHOLDS. WE EXPECT FAIR PAY AND SAFE WORKING CONDITIONS.
We all know how our jobs provide income for our home and family needs. In the bigger picture, the vitality of our households shapes the economic health of our communities and our state. We also see that good jobs and workplaces benefit from workers' insights and work-site culture. I value dynamic employer-employee relationships that strengthen our economy and Utah families.
