Congressman Chris Stewart (UT-02) has spent his adult life defending America; first as an Air Force pilot flying the B1B, and now as a member of Congress. Chris grew up farming and ranching with his 9 siblings. He is a National Security expert and fierce advocate of limiting government spending and overreach. His fiscally conservative record and Military experience landed him on two powerful committees: the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the Appropriations Committee. Chris is a NY Times best-selling Author, and has published over 20 books. With 70% of Utah owned by the federal government, Chris Stewart has consistently fought to preserve the economy in rural Utah and manage federal lands in a more effective way. His most recently introduced legislation would create federal assistance to states in maintaining search and rescue equipment used on public lands. Chris Stewart's legislation focusing on mental health was signed into law in 2020, providing a nation-wide three digit number for those struggling with despair or thoughts of suicide. The greatest blessings in his life are his wife, Evie, their 6 children and 16 grandchildren.
Nick Mitchell's qualifications for Congress are numerous. He would like to focus on his scientific background because it allows him to problem-solve unique solutions. He believes in doing what is right and he researches to fully-understand an issue. Unlike politicians who cater to their base to maintain power and rake in corporate money, Nick believes in term limits and wants corporations out of politics. He is in this race to help everyday people. He wants to make commonsense and fiscally-responsible legislation that help the people maintain their liberties.
Brad Wilson has represented Utah’s 15th House District for over a decade and currently serves as Speaker of the House, a position he has held since 2019. During his service in the Legislature, he has championed policies to make Utah one of the strongest, best managed, and most business-friendly states in the nation. Known for his pragmatic and conservative approach, Speaker Wilson has led the House of Representatives as Utah cut taxes, modernized education to prepare students for prosperous futures, and made generational investments to maintain a high quality of life for the people of our state. As Utah has faced prolonged drought, Speaker Wilson has championed the effort to protect Utah’s natural infrastructure by preserving and restoring the Great Salt Lake. Under his leadership, the House has advanced policies to conserve, preserve and optimize Utah’s water supply. When taking time away from work, you’ll probably find Speaker Wilson hiking in the mountains or with his family in their boat on one of Utah’s amazing lakes. Speaker Wilson, his wife Jeni, and their three children (and dog) live in Kaysville.
Trevor Lee is running to bring relief to families struggling with inflation and higher taxes while protecting parental rights and supporting teachers to provide a quality education for our children and grandchildren. He is the Republican nominee and beat an incumbent who had voted to raise taxes on gas and groceries and even voted against property tax relief. We need a fresh perspective who will listen and lead. Someone who will bring all stakeholders to the table to find solutions. Trevor is committed to lowering taxes for working families and supporting law enforcement to ensure safe communities. Trevor lives in Layton with his wife, Kaitlin, and their growing family. He graduated from Davis high school and has a Liberal Arts degree from Weber State University. Trevor’s professional background is in business, management, finance, loans, and insurance. His background uniquely qualifies him to understand the burdens many small businesses and Utah families face. Trevor understands the essential budget is the family budget and will always put families ahead of special interests. “I’ll always listen and be accountable to the people in our district. I’ll focus on policies that protect our shared values and lead us into the future.” – Trevor
As the Republican incumbent for Legislative District 16, it has been an incredible honor to serve the citizens of Layton, Clearfield and South Weber. My goal has been and continues to be representation with integrity. I learned early in my public service as a member of the Layton City Council that listening is paramount in our constitutional, representative republic. I don't know everything and have learned that listening has made me a better legislator. We get things done in Utah including balanced budgets and tax cuts. Tax funds are sacred and they must be allocated carefully and thoughtfully. This re-election has a twist because I'm running as a Write-In Candidate. More information is available at my website (including a list of accomplishments as your State Representative), but my main intent is to allow you to vote, and that's the best part of our representative system of government. With my experience and record of success, I am the most-qualified and prepared candidate to represent you in the Utah House of Representatives from District 16. This is a unique campaign and I invite you to help me make history with a stroke of your pen! I look forward to your thoughts and questions as the campaign progresses and sincerely ask for your vote.
Paul has a proven record as a fiscal conservative; in this time of record inflation, we need to live within our means to keep Utah the best managed state in the country with small, efficient, responsive government. Paul is committed to protecting Davis County families and preserving our conservative values. Personal liberties and religious freedoms are fundamental rights that must be fiercely defended. Paul’s experience as a Mayor and City Councilman taught him the importance of collaborative local decision making. Our state is experiencing explosive population growth and an affordable housing crisis. We need proactive planning to balance economic growth with protecting and preserving our family friendly communities for us and for our grandchildren. Paul will fight against overreach and mandates to keep decisions local whenever possible. The best investment in Utah’s future is the education of our children. Paul supports more money directly to the classroom for the biggest impact. Parents have the right and the responsibility to be involved in curriculum decisions and to make the best education related choices for their children. Paul Cutler is a qualified, collaborative, conservative ready to serve our community.
I am running as the Democratic Party nominee for Utah House District 20! I am running to offer a choice to the Citizens of UT HD 20 instead of resigning ourselves to the one party rule of the far right-wing conspiracy theory stained Trumpist Utah Republican Party. I will fight to protect and preserve Utah's public education system from those that wish to privatize it. We need to fully fund and support our public schools and teachers, not demonize, and micromanage, them to the point of running teachers out of the profession. I will push for legislation to further protect public servants from threats of violence and intimidation. I will fight to save the Great Salt Lake from drying up, which, if allowed to dry up, will destroy our quality of life here along the northern Wasatch Front. Lastly, with the Supreme courts overturning of Roe V. Wade I promise to fight to end Utah's abortion ban, and fully restore the reproductive freedoms that women have enjoyed for the past 50 years under Roe! I know this will be hard uphill battle, but we have to make our stand somewhere, and I believe UT HD 20 is that place.
I am a wife, a mother, and a grandmother. I graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor of Science in Zoology. My emphasis was in teratology. I spent the early years of our marriage studying what chemicals caused fetal birth defects. As our 5 children grew, I chose to change my focus from protecting the unborn to protecting children and families. My husband, Darren, and I have lived in Kaysville, Utah for nearly 15 years. I am a strong supporter of Public Education. I believe a fully funded public education system gives children the opportunities they need to succeed. I believe in local control. I believe that the primary role of the legislature regarding education should be simply to fund it. General control and supervision should be left to the State School Board and all other decisions regarding curriculum and programs should be determined at the district and school level. I am a strong supporter of School Community Councils. I believe Charter Schools offer additional choices for unique learning opportunities for students. Our public education system needs five areas to be successful – family engagement, quality teachers, strong leadership, a positive school climate, and rigorous standards.

My name is Emily Price. I grew up in Davis County. I have lived in Clinton for 15 years. I have four children, all educated in DSD. I am running for school board because I care! I care about students and their overall well-being. I care about parents and believe they should have a voice in their child's education. I currently serve on the Community Council at Syracuse High School and West Point Jr. High. I am a substitute teacher for DSD. I was a weekly classroom volunteer at my children’s elementary school for 14 years. I care about educators and believe they should be treated with respect, civility, and professionalism. I will serve and lead in collaboration, cooperation, kindness, and respect. I will work to support the educational interest of students in DSD. I will be a representative for every constituent in my district. I will listen and be a voice for my community. I value different perspectives and will make informed decisions. It is important for all stakeholders to have a voice and be heard. Because I care, I feel strongly that I can contribute to the overall success of the students of DSD through my efforts as a board member.
