  • How have the arts, culture, and/or humanities impacted your life?
    • We believe a healthy, strong community is one in which creativity, empathy, humanity and meaningful action can be achieved through artistic expression and diverse cultural experiences.
  • Utah's humanities and arts employ 123,000 Utahns, provide $4.4 billion in earnings, and $13.2 billion in sales. This is a larger economic impact than agriculture, mining, and real estate. Do you consider the arts and cultural sector an economic driver in Utah?
    • Yes
  • I support the following federal agencies and will work to increase fiscally responsible investment in them:
    • National Endowment for the Arts
    • National Endowment for the Humanities

  • If I win, I will join the following cultural caucuses:
    • Congressional Humanities
    • Congressional Arts
    • Congressional STEAM
  • Forgivable loans available from the Small Business Administration have been vitally important to helping the cultural industry recover from COVID-19:

    • Fiscally responsible investment in the arts and humanities is an excellent way for federal, state, and local governments to support and foster a greater understanding and appreciation for the world around us.
