I have some amazing news: I decided to run for office, to represent District 46 in the Utah State Legislature. If the district delegates vote for me on April 11, I will be the party’s nominee in the general election in November. Please contribute to my campaign via ActBlue so we can do the kind of digital outreach and social media push that is needed during quarantine. Campaigning will be taking on a whole different approach with all of the social restrictions and uncertainty in place, but elections will continue and funding is integral to a strong candidacy.
I am running because the Utah State Legislature is a Republican supermajority that only serves the wealthy and powerful at the expense of our children, working families, and our environment. During my term as Utah Democratic State Party Chair from 2017-2019, I helped bring more balance to the legislature by flipping more seats blue than had been done in decades—gaining three State House seats, a State Senate seat, and picking up a Congressional seat.
Our Democratic representative for District 46, Marie Poulson, has decided to retire, and this swing district will be a prime target to reverse the gains we made under my party leadership. I am stepping up because I believe my experience and skills give me the best chance to keep the seat blue and continue to have a strong voice for this district that speaks for working families like mine.
As a Utah mom and the head Democrat, I demanded an end to the separation and caging of immigrant children at the US-Mexico border, I advocated for expanded Medicaid and medical cannabis, I rejected private prison money, and I testified to expand voter rights. I fought hard as a DNC member, co-sponsoring resolutions demanding that we never again have internment camps on US soil, a ban on for-profit corporate PAC donations to the DNC, and that the DNC would hold a climate-specific debate during the 2020 presidential primaries. I have stood up and advocated for justice when it was difficult and I will continue to do so for District 46, if elected.
To support my campaign, please make a contribution of any amount through ActBlue. Even if $1 is all you feel you can spare, know that I appreciate your support.
I hope you are staying safe, healthy, and present. We are living through trying times and need to remain hopeful and optimistic without losing ourselves to the fear and anxiety so many of us are experiencing. If you need someone to talk to, let’s set up a time. None of us should experience this unsettling period alone.
I look forward to connecting with you soon.
