  • How have the arts, culture, and/or humanities impacted your life?
    • My life is enriched beyond measure through art, music, performance, culture, and history. The impact is immeasurable as it affects every aspect of my being. These have shaped who I am and enhanced my connection with others, my community and world.
  • 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
  • Fiscally responsible government investment in the arts and humanities (including humanities and arts education) means to me:
    • A fiscally responsible government furthers the aspirations of the citizenry through representation, consensus building, collecting revenue and approve funding.
  • I support the following legislative items:
    • Grants to be used for operations (jobs) as soon as possible
    • Keeping emergency loans open to nonprofits
    • Protecting the RAP taxes so that money granted to cultural organizations doesn't get repurposed
    • Fiscally responsible government investment in arts and humanities organizations.
    • Facilitating partnerships between tourism and culture.
    • Reducing regulations of creative businesses.
    • Capital investment (in museums, performance/concert halls, studios, galleries, nonprofit office space, etc.).
    • Allowing municipalities to set design standards
    • K-6 Students should have increased exposure to arts and humanities education
    • I support the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program which puts one arts specialist in most elementary schools
  • Anything else we should know about you?
    • I am eager to work with citizens and policy makers to responsibly further arts and humanities in our schools and communities.
