It's About Jobs!

Henry Ford stated that; “Before everything else, getting ready is the key to success.”  I stand ready to serve the people of Tooele County, and Utah.
The Utah economy created an estimated 30,300 jobs during the past year.  While this is impressive, it’s not enough.  I’m working with the Governor to achieve the vision that Utah will lead the nation as the best performing economy and be recognized as a premier global business destination.  I supported legislation and have joined forces with the Governor in his effort to facilitate the creation 100,000 jobs in 1,000 days and I’ve endorsed the Utah Jobs Agenda.  We exceeded our goal in year one of this plan, and look to create at least 27,000 new jobs in year two. I worked to pass legislation strengthening existing Utah Businesses thereby creating an environment for growth, and passed legislation to help increase innovation, entrepreneurship and investment by reducing unreasonable tax burdens.  I helped to pass legislation enhancing the Utah World Trade Center thereby increasing national and international business interest in Utah.
