A free market is part of sustained economic growth; free and fair trade has been a boon to the US economy for years. Steel tariffs and the resulting retaliation is hurting Utah more profoundly than most states. Utah is a global trading state and Utah needs a congressman who understands and actively defends Utah's market position.
Northern Utah and the Uintah Basin are best served through broad and sustainable economic growth. Prosperity is created through innovation, risk taking, disruptive technologies, and open and accessible markets. I will work to promote policies that allow these growth factors to flourish and position Utah towards meeting future market demands. Our economy is changing rapidly, and Utah needs representatives who understand this and will work to help Utah adjust quickly.
